Call for Papers
What did medieval peoples know about their world? What do we know about the Middle Ages? We welcome papers on all aspects of the Middle Ages, but we particularly encourage papers that consider the role of knowledge. Suggested topics include medieval education, medieval philosophies of what can and cannot be known, material artifacts such as manuscripts that let us "know" more about the Middle Ages, the exploitation of the Middle Ages by post-medieval scholars and artists, the limits of knowledge in medieval literature, knowledge of self, and knowledge (or lack thereof) of others.
Papers should be 20 minutes in length. Please submit abstracts (250 words or less) electronically (see Submit Abstract at menu on left).
