Call For Papers

This symposium will be taking place on Saturday 8 October in the Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, University of London. Keynote speaker: Dr Sarah Salih (KCL)

The Middle Ages continue to live on in the post-medieval world, creatively re-imagined and restored in the art, architecture, literature, culture, and ideologies of individual and collective imaginations. London – a city whose medieval history clashes evocatively with its modern cityscapes – is the fitting backdrop for the Interdisciplinary Seminar on Medievalism, a new seminar series that will explore the manifold methods and motivations for transporting ‘the medieval’ across temporal boundaries. For its inaugural symposium, the seminar organisers invite proposals for twenty-minute papers on ‘Experiencing the Middle Ages in the Post-Medieval World’. Topics for individual papers might include (but are by no means restricted to):

· Political Medievalism

· Medievalism and Film / TV

· Medievalism in Popular Culture

· Literary Medievalism

· Medievalism in Art and Architecture

· Modes of reception

· Eco-Medievalism

· Medievalism and Gender

Please send proposals of no more than 250 words by 30 June 2017 to simon.trafford@sas.ac.uk.
