Call for Papers! The Fifth Fifteenth-Century Conference, co-sponsored by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's Program in Medieval Studies and Department of English, will be held May 6 – 9, 2007, immediately preceding the Forty-Second International Medieval Congress at Western Michigan University.
The site for the conference will be Allerton Park. Featured speakers include Prof. Barrie Dobson, Cambridge University (retired), and Prof. Pamela King, University of Bristol. Prof. Dobson’s plenary address is entitled "The Rise of the Professions in Fifteenth-Century England," and Prof. King’s keynote address is "Confraternities, Civic Shows, and the Rhetoric of Fifteenth-Century English Urban Culture."
The deadline for proposals is Friday, November 3, 2006. Papers should be approximately 45 minutes long and can deal with any aspect of fifteenth-century English history and culture. (The conference’s definition of "fifteenth-century England" is broad: England and its realm—both insular and continental—from c. 1350 to c. 1550.)
