>>Topic Open<<
You are cordially invited to submit abstracts for session and 20-minute
paper proposals either on the conference theme or on any topic in
medieval, Renaissance, or early modern studies. "The Presence of the
Past" concerns such questions as these: in what ways are images,
artifacts, texts, and institutions of the medieval and early modern
periods part of the contemporary world?  What valid parallels or
narratives connect these periods to the world today?  How can we address
our own historical and cultural situatedness?  How did medieval and
early modern cultures themselves apprehend and address the presence of
the past?

Deadline: March 1, 2002
Submit by January 15 for early response
