“Specular Reflections: The Mirror in Medieval and Early Modern Culture”
The Early Romance Studies Research Cluster, along with the Committee for Medieval Studies at the University of British Columbia, solicits contributions for the 40th Annual UBC Medieval Workshop, to be held on March 16-17, 2012. The conference will be held at Green College on the beautiful UBC campus in Vancouver, Canada.
We are looking for papers dealing with any aspect of ‘specular reflections’ through text, image, music or any branch of learning, especially those that engage with the paradoxical ways mirror images are used in all periods, places, and disciplines from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern Period. Areas of interest might include, but are in no way limited to: literature, translation, history, art history, philosophy, science and optics, musicology, etc.
Submissions are invited for 20-minute papers and for full panels (three papers and a chair). Selected papers from the workshop will be collected as part of a thematic volume of proceedings.
Deadline for submissions: August 1, 2011.
