The Rocky Mountain Medieval and Renaissance Association invites panel and paper proposals on the conference theme, “Peregrinatio pro amore Dei: Aspects of Pilgrimage in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.” The conference dates are June 12-14, 2014, and venue is SpringHill Suites Marriott in downtown Denver, CO, adjacent to the Metropolitan State University of Denver.
The RMMRA Program Committee welcomes individual paper and panel proposals that address the conference theme from disciplines within the late antique, medieval, Renaissance, and Reformation periods (c. 4th to 17th Centuries). We invite all approaches, but special consideration will be given to those papers that attempt historical, literary, scientific, archaeological, and anthropological inquiries of pilgrimage, especially in the following subject areas: holy sites & shrines; cults of relics and saints; salvific aspects (healing, science, medicine); gender studies; geographical reckoning (faith-based vs. empirical); theological promotion, dissuasion, and contestation; mystical and philosophical beliefs (and criticism); internationality; secular vs. clerical approaches; considerations about (and representations of) space; relevant aspects of communitas and liminality; travel and communication; and, finally, intellectual history.
AS ALWAYS, ALL PAPER AND SESSION PROPOSALS RELATED TO MEDIEVAL & RENAISSANCE STUDIES ARE WELCOME! (THEME NOT REQUIRED.)
Proposals for panels or abstracts for individual papers should be directed via email (Word, .pdf, or Rich Text) to one of the conference’s co-organizers: Kim Klimek (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Todd Upton (email@example.com).
