Plymouth State University's 32nd Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum, to be held April 15-16, 2011, invites abstracts in medieval and Early Modern studies that consider how secular and religious love, affection, and devotion were perceived and expressed in a variety of contexts. Abstracts need not be confined to the theme, but may cover many aspects of medieval and Renaissance life, literature, languages, art, philosophy, theology, history and music.
Peer-reviewed, edited collection of selected essays from the conference will be published on the theme of "Love, Friendship, Marriage."
