CALL FOR PAPERS FOR PANEL entitled "Medieval lives, media-cities--Medieval visions, modern spaces."
This panel is part of the 42nd Annual Comparative Literature Conference, 15-16 March 2007--California State University, Long Beach. This year’s conference topic is “Women, Sexuality, and Early Modern Studies.”
"Medieval lives, media-cities--Medieval visions, modern spaces"
This panel will explore the layered temporality of the city. We will explore the image of the city as imagined by global technologies and local aspirations; we will look at the signs and codes by which the cities live.
In addition, we will look at cinematic mappings of the metropolis and issues of urban polarization. The panel will explore the technologies and cultural practices which make city spaces exist in more than one temporal
location and which make them function as archive of both the medieval and the modern.
Please email abstracts of 150- 300 words to:

Deadline for paper proposals: December 15, 2006.
