Apologies in advance to those of you who may receive this CFP more than
once.  We're trying to reach as many graduate students in medieval and
Renaissance studies as we can, so please feel free to forward this
post.  Many thanks for your time and attention!

Call for Papers

WRINKLES IN TIME: RUPTURES AND CONTINUITIES IN THE WRITING OF THE MIDDLE
AGES AND THE RENAISSANCE

October 7, 2000

A Graduate Student Conference at the University of Pennsylvania

This conference will explore both the writings produced during the
Middle Ages and the Renaissance and the ways in which those periods have
themselves been written to meet a variety of subsequent historical and
cultural concerns.  We are particularly interested in papers relating
specific topics to larger theoretical questions, especially those posed
by recent historicist scholarship.  Potential topics may come from, but
are not limited to, the following areas of interest:

* periodization: historiography, terminology, cultural fantasy
* literal "wrinkles" and other objects: material culture in its temporal
dimension
* religious reformations: innovation and conservation
* transformations in gender, sex, and identity
* performance: actual practices and theoretical frameworks
* the genres of history-writing: chronicles, lives, history plays
* marginal, "unwritten" histories
* reception and revision of medieval forms in Renaissance literature
* manuscript matrix / print culture
* communities constructed in space and over time
* monarchic regimes and dissenting forms of power

Single-page abstracts for twenty-minute papers should be sent to:
