>>Topic Open<<
You are cordially invited to submit abstracts for session and 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
