Call For Papers

Encounters in Medieval Trans Studies is a panel hosted by the Society for the Society for Queer Medieval Studies that will be taking place during the International Congress on Medieval Studies in May 2023.

Brief description:

Medieval trans studies has emerged as a developing field that complicates modern assumptions about binary gender, gender nonconformity, and trans subjectivity in medieval literary, artistic, and historical documents. Medieval people employed a range of terms to denote various aspects of gender presentation, performance, and embodiment in medieval Europe, including nonbinary genders, in ways that do not neatly map onto modern trans or queer theory. As such, this session seeks papers that engage in questions and/or broach solutions to the theoretical and methodological challenges found within medieval trans studies.

Proposals (250 words) are due on the ICMS Confex Portal on Monday, 15 September 2022:
