Call for Papers and Sessions

We welcome abstracts (one page or less) or panel proposals that discuss the nature and cultural and religious context of violence in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period.

Papers, however, need not be confined to this theme but may cover other aspects of medieval and Renaissance life, literature, languages, art, philosophy, theology, history, and music.

We are pleased to announce that all papers presented at this year’s Forum are eligible for inclusion in Selected Proceedings of the 38th Medieval and Renaissance Forum, to be published by Cambridge Scholars Press.
