Call for Papers
Medievalism: Its Centers and Margins

Paper Proposal Deadline: July 1, 2013

In addition to the authors, texts, and considerations that normally form the core of studies in medievalism, what authors occupy, haunt, or draw the boundaries of what we consider proper matter for this field? What currently lies outside that we should certainly include, and what perhaps lies near the center that doesn't really fit at all? Within the texts we study, what ideas or approaches form the core, and what has lingered at the margins, or what do we need to bring from outside toward center state for careful study and consideration? Participants should feel welcome to submit abstracts directed to the conference theme or on any other aspects of medievalism--the study of later ages' use of the material of the Middle Ages--that they choose to explore.

St. Norbert College (De Pere, Wisconsin) is just four miles from Green Bay and ten minutes from Green Bay Austin Straubel Airport (with daily service to Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, Cleveland, and Atlanta), about a two-hour dirve north from Milwaukee and four hours' drive from Chicago.

PUBLICATION OPPORTUNITIES: Presenters may feel welcome to submit papers to The Year's Work in Medievalism (edited by E. L. Risden). Longer articles (over 6000 words) should be submitted to Studies in Medievalism (edited by Karl Fugelso).

Please send papers, abstracts, or session proposals to:
