Call For Papers
 
The Future of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance
Problems, Trends, and Opportunities in Research
 
              February 15-17, 1996
 
ACMRS at Arizona State University invites papers for its second annual
interdisciplinary conference on Medieval and Renaissance studies on the general
topic of problems and new directions in the study of the Middle Ages and Early
Modern period. Possible session topics include, but are not restricted to:
 
      problems of interdisciplinarity
      integrating literature and history
      local history versus period history
      copyright and technology
      textual studies
      the new philology
      politics and agendas of disciplines
      the future of Med/Ren studies in art history,
      history, literature, religion, economics, etc.
 
While we want a broad spectrum of area studies represented, we are particularly
interested in papers on Scandinavian, Baltic/East European, Judaic, and
Mediterranean Studies.  There will also be a number of open sessions.
 
Papers accepted for sessions on Mediterranean Studies will have passed the
first level of review 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.
 
ACMRS 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.
 
This year's keynote speaker will be Marcia Colish, Oberlin College.
 
The conference will be held at the Radisson Mission Palms Hotel, two blocks
from the ASU campus in Tempe, a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona.  The high
temperature in the "Valley of the Sun" during February averages 70 degrees.
 
Proposals for sessions and detailed abstracts or complete papers will be
accepted beginning July 1, 1995.  The deadline is November 1, 1995.  Please
send two copies of your abstract, paper and/or session proposal, along with two
copies of your c.v., to the program committee chair:  Robert E. Bjork,
Director, ACMRS, Arizona State University, Box 872301, Tempe, AZ 85287-2301.

Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan (just outside Grand
Rapids) is holding its second annual Shakespeare Festival, September 22 to
October 1, 1994.
 
Romeo & Juliet  will be produced, acted by college students and two pros. We'll
have a number of film showings, with discussions of film/theater differences.
There'll be garden performances of scenes and Shakespeare spin-offs. Jean
Howard will be lecturing and visiting classes. Some Renaissance music and a
Renaissance dinner finale.
 
Please stop in, if you're in the area. I can send a full schedule by snail mail
to anyone who is interested.
