Subject:        Conference on Medieval and Early Modern Studies, NZ

Conference on Medieval and Early Modern Studies, New Zealand, 2-5
February 1998.  The Australia and New Zealand Association of Medieval
and Early Modern Studies (ANZAMEMS) Conference will be held in
Wellington, New Zealand on the 2nd-5th February 1998.  ANZAMEMS is an
interdisciplinary organisation, and the conference theme for 1998 is to
be "Borderlines: Crossings and Conflicts".   We hope to attract  papers
that reflect on such topics as  cultural borrowings and exchanges across
time and space; on disciplinary and period divisions and exchanges; on
the significance of institutionalised distinctions between medieval
studies and early modern studies; on how scholarship with a national or
vernacular or regional focus bears upon notions of "Europe", "Latin
Christendom", etc.

To date, we have had acceptances from several  prominent scholars in the
field  to act as plenary speakers at the conference.    These include
Professor Douglas Gray from Oxford University (Medieval Literature),
Professor MacD. P. Jackson, University of Auckland (Early Modern
Literature), Professor Norm Jones, Utah (Early Modern History),
Professor Jo Ann McNamara from Hunter College, New York (Medieval
History), Dr A. J.  Pollard, Teesside University (Tudor History), and Dr
Diane Purkiss, from the University of Reading (Early Modern Literature).
