CFP: Exploring the Premodern World” (Due November 15)


IMGC 2016 CFP: “Exploring the Premodern World” hosted by Purdue University

The Indiana Medieval Graduate Consortium (IMGC) welcomes submissions for its annual symposium to be held at Purdue University March 4-5, 2016. The goal of the symposium is to promote serious scholarly investigation of the classical, medieval, and early modern worlds. We encourage proposals approaching the premodern world from a diverse set of methodologies and disciplines; presentations might engage literature, history, philosophy, religious studies, linguistics, manuscript studies, art history, music studies, and so on.

The committee encourages scholarship that challenges periodization and hopes to promote cross-curricular conversation among participants; however, all submissions should be geared toward scholarly investigation of the thinking, cultures, and works of the classical, medieval, and/or early modern worlds.

Proposals for 20 minute individual papers should be approximately 250 words long and should include the presenter’s contact information and A/V requirements. Please submit your abstracts and any questions you may have about the symposium to

The conference will feature a keynote address--"Sir Orfeo among the Figmenta"--given by Richard Firth Green and two workshops, one on Paleography led by Michael Johnston and one on Scholarly Publishing led by Dorsey Armstrong, editor of Arthuriana. (Workshops will be capped at 20 participants with a $10 registration fee, registration details to follow).
