The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Arizona State
University invites papers for its second annual interdisciplinary conference on
February 15-17, 1996.  Papers on any topic in Medieval or Early Modern studies
are acceptable.  Papers related to the conference theme, _The Future of the
Middle Ages and the Renaissance: Problems, Trends, and Opportunities in
Research,_ are automatically considered for publication in the second volume of
the new "Arizona Studies in the Middle Ages and Renaissance" series, published
by Brepols Publishers of Belgium.  Papers dealing with any facet of the
Mediterranean region will be automatically considered for publication in the
journal _Mediterranean Studies,_ sponsored by the University of Massachusetts
at Dartmouth, the Medieval and Renaissance Colloquium (MARC) at the University
of Michigan, and ACMRS at Arizona State University.
 
The setting of the conference is the Radisson Mission Palms Hotel, a five-star
luxury resort featuring swimming pool, sauna, and proximity to numerous
attractions in the Phoenix-Scottsdale-Tempe area.  The hotel is just two blocks
from the ASU campus and 15 minutes from the Phoenix airport.  The high
temperature in the "Valley of the Sun" during February averages 70 degrees.
The conference registration fee is just $45 and includes welcoming reception,
two days of concurrent sessions, concert, complimentary refreshments between
sessions, and keynote address.
 
The conference keynote speaker will be Marcia L. Colish, Frederick B. Artz
Professor of History at Oberlin College, former president of The Medieval
Academy of America, and author of the highly-acclaimed _The Mirror of Language:
A Study in the Medieval Theory of Knowledge._ She will speak on "Re-envisioning
the Middle Ages: A View from Intellectual History."
 
The conference will also host _The Medieval Book: A Workshop in Codicological
Practice._  This pre-conference half-day workshop led by Richard Clement,
University of Kansas, will focus on the making of the medieval codex.
Participants will discuss the preparation of parchment and paper, the making of
pens and ink, and then will make and prepare several quires in preparation for
writing.  NOTE:  This workshop does not cover scripts and is not calligraphic.
 
By December 15, send two copies of session proposals, one-page abstracts, or
complete papers, along with two copies of your current c.v., to the program

Seminars
 
Seminar 1: `Nation', Travel, Empire
Leader: John Drakakis
How are we to study `nation', `travel', `empire' in the Shakespeare text, and
within our own `post'-colonial/neo-colonial condition? How do we connect
notions of `nation', nationalism, travel and empire in theory and in practice
to our own conditions of pedagogy and research?
 
Seminar 2: Reading global literatures within `post-coloniality'/neo-
colonialism
Seminar Leader: Windsor Leroke
Does `"post"-coloniality' have any meaning in a South African context? What
parts of this theory - if any - are `exportable' and why? How are material
conditions including those involving academic work within `post'-colonial
environments to be a factor in the study of the metropolitan text? How are we
to re-appropriate or re-read metropolitan texts? How has the Shakespeare text
been appropriated in Africa? In what ways is the Shakespeare text to be used in
the future? What kinds of readings might be appropriate? Can the Shakespeare
text survive?
 
Seminar 3: Empire/Difference: `Race', Gender, Sexuality, Religion
Seminar Leader: Barbara Bowen
How are we to study `race', gender, sexuality, religion within the
`post'-colonial/neo/colonial condition? What does `difference' mean outside the
North-American and European metropolis? What constitutes `religion' in the
Shakespeare text? Against what is it constructed? How does the text construct
`other' religions?
 
Seminar 4: Shakespeare in Education
Seminar Leaders: Thomas Berger and Colin Gardner
What pedagogy and what methodologies are appropriate within the `post'-colonial
situation? To what extent will such a pedagogy force a reconsideration of
`main-stream' teaching?
 
Workshop on Southern African and South Asian Studies
Workshop Leader: Isabel Hofmeyr
Several position papers will be presented at this session for
discussion.
 
Abstracts of papers should be submitted to the Seminar Leader c/o Martin Orkin
(please see address below) by the Conference Registration date 25 February 1996
