Subject: 	Call for Papers

Essays are sought for a collection on the historical, literary and 
broader cultural  significance of Walsingham, the medieval pilgrimage 
site to the Virgin Mary, which was destroyed in the Reformation and been 
revived in the Twentieth Century. Modern accounts have generally focused 
on historical origins, theology, or personal devotion: while these 
approaches will not be ignored, essays are especially sought on 
artistic, anthropological, architectural, poetical approaches to 
Walsingham's continuing presence in Shakespeare's England (roughly 
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries) including pilgrimage, cultural 
nostalgia, Please send proposals to Gary Waller, Professor of Literature 
and Cultural Studies and Drama Studies, School of Humanities, Purchase 
College, Purchase NY 10577;This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
