Medieval Conferences

This is a selection of conferences on medieval art and related topics. Many are for graduate students, but conferences open to all are also included. Conferences from all over the world are included here, as long as the listing is (mainly) in English. Remember also to check the main Symposia (North America) and the Symposia (Everywhere else) pages for other conferences with calls for papers in many or all fields. Conferences with Web sites will be left posted for a while after the event for the pleasure of the reader.
PLEASE NOTE: Beginning sometime this summer I will no longer post conference or other opportunities that do not have a Web site.

"THE DECORATED PAGE" OF MEDIEVAL IMAGES AND GRAPHIC NOVELS: "Sequential Theory" in Dialogue with Medieval Art

9-12 May 2013. International Medieval Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan. "The "Decorated Page" of illuminated medieval manuscripts has a connection to the modern graphic novel, but what can the theories and analysis of medieval manuscripts, wall paintings or other medieval visual mediums tell us about how we read the graphic novel, and how might the theories behind the contemporary graphic novel analysis help us read the medieval illustrations and art? Standing on the shoulders of traditional analysis of medieval images, the use of the visual theories that support analysis of the graphic novel is a way of engaging the images in a postmodern (post medieval) way. Interpreting a sequence of manuscript images is probably the most common use, but we can see the potential of "sequential imagery" analysis being used on wall paintings, sculpture, frescoes, friezes, textiles, altar pieces and icons. We invite papers that establish a dialogue between graphic novel theory/practice and a particular piece of medieval art. Presenters may assume readers and audience will have a moderate to high level of familiarity with the works of Eisner, McCloud, and Groensteen. Proposals should be no longer than 400 words and must clearly indicate the significance, line of argument, principal texts and relation to existing scholarship (if possible). E-mail the proposal in the body of the message, a 50-word bio note, and a completed Participant Information form. Deadline: September 15, 2012.

HEROES AND MONSTERS

21-23 March, 2013. Medieval Association of the Pacific Conference. University of San Diego, California. Sponsored by MEARCSTAPA (Monsters: the Experimental Association for the Research of Cryptozoology through Scholarly Theory And Practical Application). "What is the relationship between the hero and the monster? How is the hero transformed by his/her encounter with the monstrous? What is the hero without the monster (and vice versa)? In an attempt to understand this association, our session invites papers on the relationship(s) between heroes and the monsters they defeat (or by whom they are defeated). We welcome papers addressing heroes and monsters in all of their various formats (heroes can include knights, saints, or those "just plain clever"; while monsters can be dragons, demons, giants, etc), and which choose to play figuratively upon the concept of defeat (e.g. the giant Galehaut's "defeat" and death via lovesickness at the "hands" of Lancelot). Of particular interest will be those papers that focus upon the way in which the hero and/or monster is physically/mentally/spiritually changed through this encounter, or those works in which the hero is or becomes a monster (e.g. early versions of St. Christopher's Life which feature him as a cynocephalus; the eponymous hero from Marie de France's Bisclavret).

"Please send a title, an abstract (approx. 350 words), and your complete contact information (Name, e-mail, telephone, affiliation, status, title) to Michael Heyes (Michael.E.Heyes@rice.edu) or Asa Simon Mittman (asmittman@mail.csuchico.edu) by September 28.

ITALIAN ART SOCIETY SESSIONS AT KALAMAZOO

9-12 May 2013. Kalamazoo, Michigan. Four sessions on Ruptures in Medieval Italian Art and Architecture. "Whether moving forward by leaps and bounds or coming to a screeching halt, the long path of Italian medieval art includes instances of back tracking, progression and return, revival and innovation. These sessions seek papers that investigate art and architecture created at moments of rupture with tradition, with accepted norms or forms, with conventions, or with anticipated developments. Common ruptures include but are not limited to iconoclasms, proto-renaissances, Church schisms, heresies and reforms, civil strife, crusades and the Black Death. To be sure, rupture is in the eye of the beholder; an egregious instance of it may, for others, constitute continuity. Accordingly, papers may address not only what was, but also what could have been in an effort to trace the footsteps of winners and losers. These panels focus on the people, events, ideas and forms that in one way or another broke with the prevailing course of the arts in medieval Italy." Proposals should include a one-page abstract and a completed Participant Information Form (available on the Congress website) to session organizer, Martina Bagnoli, (mbagnoli@thewalters.org) by September 15th, 2012.
