CFP: "Intersectionality"

The Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Association at The Ohio State University would like to invite abstracts from any area of medieval and early modern studies for their fourth annual conference, to be held on October 14-15, 2016 in Columbus, OH.

The theme of this years conference is Intersectionality. As a perspective, intersectionality examines overlapping systems of oppression and discrimination such as gender, race, class, disability, and religion. This conference hopes to start a discussion about intersectionality in the Middle Ages and Renaissance in all of its various forms by specifically focusing on questions of how and why certain ideological structures and ideas intersect, and what implications emerge of these overlappings.

Abstracts of 250-300 words are due August 31, 2016 via e-mail at All submissions should include the title of the paper, the abstract, as well as the name, the institutional affiliation, and contact information of the author. Chosen participants will be notified by e-mail no later than September 12, 2016. A $100 prize will be presented to the best paper at the conference.
