Foregrounding interdisciplinarity, CCMTS welcomes papers employing any 
literary, historical, art-historical, demographic, or anthropological 
approaches and source materials. **Any Christian and non-Christian, 
Western and Oriental attitudes and practices about children are 
especially welcome to offer a point of contrast.**

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

Parents and children

Incest, child abuse, sexual initiation, and education of children

Fosterage and abandonment

Generation conflict

Perceptions of children

Children as leaders of adults

Children on crusade

** Aspects about Tudor children may also be of interest to the conference.


Prof. Peter G. Beidler (Lehigh University, US) has offered to lead a 
pre/post-conference walking tour to Harbledown ("Bobbe-up-and-down", 
under the Blean forest), to pick up the trail that Chaucer's pilgrims 
may well have followed to the West Gate and the Cathedral. They will 
pass the spring where the Black Prince is said to have visited often.


Please send any enquiries, or a title and 200-word abstract for a 
20-minute paper, by 31 December 2005, to Christine Li Ju Tsai:
