A two-day international conference
23rd-24th September, 2005,
at the Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London
organised by the Folklore Society
Papers are sought on any topic within the field of charms studies, especially international charm parallels, charmers’ books and charmers’ repertoires, the transmission and memorisation of charms, variation in charm texts and its motivation, the performance details of charming, charms as an expression of vernacular Christianity, the ‘life history’ of particular charm-types, and (re)assessments of the classics of charms scholarship.
The conference follows on from a joint Warburg/Folklore Society event in January 2003, Charms and Charming in Northern Europe. Papers should be 20-25 minutes in length, and while the working language of the conference language will be English, there is no geographical limitation to the subject matter of the papers.
There is no conference fee for speakers, but participants are advised that they are responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs.
