Call for Papers: The Medieval Academy 2013 Annual Meeting


2013 ANNUAL MEETING, 4-6 April

University of Tennessee (Knoxville)

The annual meeting of the Medieval Academy will be held 4-6 April 2013, in downtown Knoxville, hosted by the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, the University of Tennessee Marco Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and the Sewanee Medieval Colloquium.

Our theme for the MAA meeting is “Regions and Regional Identity in the Middle Ages.” Sessions will address a variety of topics, many of them well outside the conference theme, but we hope to stress the importance of a sense of place, family, and locality in as many presentations as possible. We are seeking, therefore, innovative proposals for papers and sessions, and we hope to see significant cross-disciplinary participation as well. For both the commissioned and the open sessions, we are looking for the broadest possible range of proposals of topics and of time periods, within and across all the disciplines.

The Program Committee invites proposals for papers on all topics and in all disciplines and periods of medieval studies. Any member of the Medieval Academy may submit a paper proposal, excepting those who presented papers at the annual meetings of the Medieval Academy in 2011 and 2012; others may submit proposals as well, but must become members in order to present papers at the meeting. Special consideration can be given to individuals whose specialty would not normally involve membership in the Academy.

A list of sessions and the complete call for papers can be found here.
