Call for Papers 1999 @ Shakespeare at Kalamazoo, Thirty-fourth
International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, Michigan.

************************************************************************

The following proposed sessions for the Thirty-fourth Congress in 1999
are subject to approval by The Medieval Institute, Western Michigan
University.  Shakespeare at Kalamazoo has organized programs at the
International Congress since 1989.

Session 1.  Ritual and the Imagery of Power in Medieval and
Shakespearean Drama.

This session invites scholars in the areas of Renaissance study, such as
art history, philosophy, theology, music, science, history, and
literature to discuss the manner in which depictions of rituals and
ceremonies convey the imagery of power.  Papers for Session 1 should
provide evidence in Shakespeare's plays of medieval performance
practices and dramaturgical conventions in depictions of rituals and
ceremonies.  Emphases will be on ceremonies of arrival and departure,
actualizing the "self" through ritual enactment, and the increasing
ritualization, artificiality, and theatricality of the Medieval
tournament throughout the early modern period.

Session 2.  Stories of the Body: Medieval and Shakespearean Embodiments

This session invites scholars in the areas of Renaissance study, such as
art history, philosophy, theology, music, science, history, and
literature to discuss constructions of the body.  Papers for Session 2
shold focus on the representations in Shakespeare's plays of late
medieval and early modern constructions of the body.  Topics may include
but are not limited to stories of the body, bodies politic, female
authority on stage, and the self-fashioning of honor.

The Congress of Medieval studies provides a unique milieu for an
exchange of insights on Shakespeare's place in the continuum of culture.
Interested parties must follow rules corresponding to those established
by the Board of the Medieval Institute.
