46th International Congress on Medieval Studies (May 12-15, 2011) in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Panel discussion sponsored by the Saint Louis University Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies
This panel discussion will explore how aesthetics might be understood not only as an end in literary form/production, but also as a means by which medieval writers attempted to establish a rhetorical or authoritative stance.
The session will examine aesthetics more as 'techne' than 'telos' (though not necessarily excluding the latter). Contributions from scholars in literary study, manuscript studies, art history, philosophy, and theology are welcome.
Presenters should present a brief (5-7 minutes) introduction of their work in this area. This will be followed by an open discussion between panel members and the audience.
Please send brief summary of work in the area to firstname.lastname@example.org
