23nd Annual Meeting of the
ILLINOIS MEDIEVAL ASSOCIATION
24-25 February 2006
Newberry Library, Chicago
"Peace and Power in Medieval Europe"
Thomas Head, Hunter College, CUNY
The Illinois Medieval Association invites proposals for papers on the theme of "Peace and Power." Peace in the Middle Ages, like war, was promoted by individuals and institutions seeking to gain control over the warring parties as well as over other social, political, cultural and religious institutions. Papers may examine any aspects of conflict and conflict resolution, as well as the means through which those conflicts emerged, were fought, and eventually resolved, whether by making treaties, paying ransom, declaring victory, and acknowledging defeat or through representations in literature, art, and religion. Proposals individual papers and for complete sessions are welcome. Papers delivered at the conference are eligible for publication in Essays In Medieval Studies.
