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

Plenary Panel:
        Chris Chism, Rutgers University (New Brunswick)
        Sean Keilen, University of Pennsylvania
        Katherine Rowe, Bryn Mawr College
        Vance Smith, Princeton University
        Emily Steiner, 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

We welcome not only papers focusing primarily on writings in English but
also those focusing on literatures and cultures outside of England.

By June 15, 2000, single-page abstracts for twenty-minute papers should
be sent to:
