Graduate Conference in Medieval & Renaissance Studies
May 3, 2008
University of Maryland, College Park
Keynote speaker: Kristen Poole of the University of Delaware and author of _Radical Religion: Figures of Nonconformity from Shakespeare to Milton_ (Cambridge UP, 2000)
Our focus this year will be "Mutability." Some questions to consider are:
What stimulates change or prevents it?
How is change perceived, and by what means is it known?
How is mutability represented in literature, culture, politics, religion, philosophy, and the history of science?
How are the same changes imagined differently within and across various disciplines?
In what ways have the interactions between different media and disciplines shaped our understanding of mutability in the late medieval and early modern period, as well as our own changing perception of "medieval" or "early modern" studies?
We encourage proposals for papers or panels that cross disciplinary boundaries or reassess critical boundaries between "medieval" and "Renaissance" or "early modern" periods, or that speak to other opportunities and challenges for early modern studies.
