  • 2016 MAMA XL Conference
  • MAMA XL "Other Worlds" Conference Announcement and CFP for the Fortieth Annual Meeting of the MID-AMERICA MEDIEVAL ASSOCIATION
    SATURDAY, 17 September 2016

    Plenary speaker: Richard Firth Green, Humanities Distinguished Professor, The Ohio State University

    Papers are invited on any medieval topic, including, of course, those aligned with the conference theme. While Professor Green’s plenary address will be drawn from his recent work on the world of faerie and his forthcoming book, The Bonny Road: Traffic with the Otherworld in the Middle Ages, “Other Worlds” can be construed to encompass many other worlds indeed, spiritual, supernatural, imaginary or fanciful, social, physical, metaphysical, psychological, gendered, ethnic, geographical—with Paradise, Purgatory, Hell, the past, the future, the cloister, the college, the East, Islam, Judaism, social classes other than one’s own, lands other than one’s own, Camelot, Avalon, and faerie, itself, representing only a few of the possibilities.

    Please send 250-word abstracts of papers on any medieval topic no later than 6 May 2016 to:
