Bryn Mawr Graduate Student Symposium: Feed Your Head: Food as Material and Metaphor
11 – 12 November 2011

Keynote Speaker: Darra Goldstein, Francis Christopher Oakley Third Century Professor of Russian, Williams College, and Founding Editor of Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture

The need to consume food is a basic, but universal, constant in human life. Yet, food as object and idea is in a constant state of flux. What and how does food mean, and how do the cultural productions of societies manifest these meanings? Food in its absence, presence, or overabundance shapes the individual and society alike. It contributes to identity as well as the physical make-up of the body. Eating can be a spectacle, a ritual, or an event accessible to all or restricted to some. It can likewise be a performance at the intersection of body, sustenance, and architectural space. What is the relationship between where we eat and what (or how) we eat? What is the relationship between what we eat and who we are?

This interdisciplinary symposium invites graduate students in Classics, Archaeology, History of Art, and related fields to present papers that address material and metaphorical aspects of food from the ancient world to modernity. Topics might include:

– visual and textual representations of food
– architectural spaces and food
– material culture of food
– feasting
– fasting
– gluttony; delight and disgust
– hunger and satiation
– food supply and trade
– food production and/or preparation
– politics of food
– relationship of food and body
– food as flesh
– ethics of consumption
– ritual and social aspects of food
– food and cultural/individual identity
– food taboos and anxieties
– poison, contamination, and health

The symposium committee will be accepting and reviewing submissions throughout the summer. Please submit abstracts of less than 250 words by September 1, 2011 to bmcsymposium(at)gmail(dot)com. If digital submission is not possible, please submit a paper copy to: Bryn Mawr Graduate Student Symposium, c/o Jennifer Hoit, Box 1623
, Bryn Mawr College
, 101 North Merion Ave.
, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.

International Congress on Medieval Studies (ICMS) Kalamazoo 2012 (full CFP will be published in July)
10 – 13 May 2012

————————————-

The Hagiography Society has received approval for five sessions for the 47th International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo (May 10-13, 2012). Three sessions honor Sherry Reames, founder of the Hagiography Society, professor emerita at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a well-known scholar for her studies of the Legenda aurea, liturgical calendars, and other hagiographic texts. To accommodate the anticipated response to these three panels, one of the three sessions honoring Sherry will be a roundtable of six to eight panelists. The sessions honoring Sherry are:

I. In Honor of Sherry Reames I: The Legenda Aurea and Its Offshoots
II. In Honor of Sherry Reames II: Saints as Students and Teachers
III. In Honor of Sherry Reames III: Inspired by Sherry Reames (Roundtable)

If you are interested in submitting a proposal to one of the three sessions honoring Sherry, decide which is most appropriate for you and tailor your proposal to that session. Sessions I and II will each consist of three 20-minute papers; proposals for Session III (the roundtable) will consist of six to eight short (7-10-minute) papers.

Session IV Seeing Saints in Art

We seek papers regarding hagiographic iconography and trends related to a group of saints or an individual saint in church art, private devotional art, and manuscript art.

Session V Women’s Collections of Relics already has closed.

Last year, we received an unprecedented number of proposals in response to our call for papers. We expect an even higher response this year. We ask Hagiography Society members to submit paper proposals by September 1. Please send only full abstracts and the PIF form (available as a download from the Medieval Congress website). We will be unable to give answers regarding acceptance of individual papers until after September 15. Papers submitted after September 1 may not get full consideration. The members of the paper selection committee, Mary Morse, Tom Liszka and Lisa Bansen-Harp, look forward to receiving your proposals.

E-mail proposals are preferred. Please submit proposals and PIF forms to Mary Morse, Hagiography Society Program Chair, at mmorse@rider.edu

If you prefer to send your proposal and PIF by regular mail, please send them to Mary at 440 Hillside Ave., Morrisville PA 19067.

PASSAGES FROM ANTIQUITY TO THE MIDDLE AGES V
INFIRMITAS: SOCIAL AND CULTURAL APPROACHES TO CURE, CARING AND HEALTH
University of Tampere, Finland
History/School of Social Sciences and Humanities
Trivium Centre for Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies
23 – 26 August 2012

The fifth international conference on Passages from Antiquity to the Middle Ages will focus on social and cultural approaches to health and illness, cure and caring, and notions of ability and disability. These topics are of major importance for communities and societies both in Antiquity and during the Middle Ages, yet research is still fragmentary and more synthetic and interdisciplinary approaches are rare.

We welcome papers which focus on different actors – institutions, communities, families or individuals – and have a sensitive approach to social differences: gender, age and status. Thus, our focus lies on society and the history of everyday life, on the differences and similarities between elite and popular culture, and on the expectations linked to gender and life-cycle stage, visible in the practices and policies under scrutiny. How were physical and mental disability/ability defined within daily life; what were the social consequences of illness; how was social interaction reflected in caring for the sick; how were cure and caring organised in families, communities and in society? We aim not to concentrate on medical or technical aspects of health and illness, but rather to integrate them in a larger social and cultural context.

The conference aims at broad coverage not only chronologically but also geographically and disciplinary (all branches of Classical and Medieval Studies). Most preferable are contributions having themselves a comparative and/or interdisciplinary perspective. The speakers of the conference will include Nancy Caciola (University of San Diego), Véronique Dasen (University of Fribourg), William V. Harris (Columbia University), and Christian Krötzl (University of Tampere).

If interested, please submit an abstract of 300 words (setting out thesis and conclusions) for a twenty-minute paper together with your contact details (with academic affiliation, address and e-mail) by e-mail attachment to the conference secretary, passages@uta.fi. The deadline for abstracts is September 15th 2011, and the notification of paper acceptance will be made in November 2011. Conference papers may be presented in major scientific languages, however supplied with English summary or translation if the language of presentation is not English. The registration fee is 100 € (post-graduate students: 50 €).

For further information, please visit http://www.uta.fi/trivium/passages/ or contact the organizers by e-mailing to passages(at)uta(dot)fi. The registration opens in November 2011 at http://www.uta.fi/trivium/passages/.

Colloque international: Révoltes à l’écran: Révoltes et révolutions dans l’Europe moderne (XVe siècle-1788) au cinéma et à la télévision (Université de Caen, France)
5 – 7 September 2012

Studies of revolts during the modern era associate their causation to the extensive social transformations that accompanied the birth and development of states.

The theme of this conference is the relationship between memories of insurrections during the early modern period of European history and their audiovisual transmission; visual productions, whether theatrical or documentary representations of the past, should be analyzed, for purposes of this conference, as akin to contemporary historical texts.

Consistent with the perspectives of history and of cultural anthropology, this conference seeks to examine the context out of which these audiovisual works were produced and the context of their reception, thus extending discussion of them beyond considerations of narrative and aesthetics.

The aim is essentially to explore contemporary society’s historical imagination as it has been constructed around the phenomenon of revolts and revolutions.

Finally, in order to avoid focusing too much on the major revolutionary ruptures that took place after 1789, and which feature so prominently in the pantheon of collective memories, we invite contributors to reflect on the contests for authority and revolutionary movements before 1789 which have dotted the histories of European peoples : often left out of textbook accounts, these peoples have been historically reincorporated in the cinematographic and televisual productions dealing with these events.

The revolt does not need to be the central subject of the chosen films provided that the corpus covers it in sufficiently significant manner.

Papers should examine the motivations of, and methods employed by, insurgents, in addition to representations of their demeanours, their objectives, their targets, their modes of action, and the responses of political authorities. How do the works incorporate ideology?

How were these productions diffused and received? In what ways did they express and reflect contemporary issues?

How do we understand the divergences, when they exist, between the visual representation and the state of historiography?

That being said, it will of course be equally pertinent and fruitful to address both successes and failures, as well as aborted projects.

Proposals should be around 300 words and should be sent before 15 September 2011 to colloquerevoltes(at)yahoo(dot)fr

Papers can be delivered in either French or English.

“After Constantine: Religion and Secular Power in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages”: The Thirty-Ninth Annual Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
30-31 March 2012

In recognition of the 1700th anniversary of the traditional “conversion” of Constantine, this conference will explore the interrelationship of religion and secular power in the late antique and medieval worlds. Attention will be given to the relationship of “church” and “state,” the role of the church as holder of secular power, the politics of sainthood, the uses of patronage, the relationship of religion and power in non-Christian contexts, and any other appropriate issues. The program will include 20-minute papers from any disciple.

If you are interested in presenting a paper, please submit an abstract of approx. 250 words and a short c.v. by 1 October 2011. If you would like to organize a session (3 papers preferred), please submit all the pertinent abstracts and c.v.s by 1 October. Papers accepted for the Colloquium must be submitted in their final form, including notes, by 15 Feb. 2012, in order to reach their commentators in good time. Please submit your materials electronically if possible.

The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium Prize will be awarded for the best paper by a PhD student or recent PhD recipient (degree awarded in or after June 2009)
