“The Ends of Romance” – February 18-20, 2010 at Dominican University, River Forest, IL | cfp.english.upenn.edu

by Jessica C. Murphy

The Illinois Medieval Association and Medieval Association of the Midwest invites proposals for papers on the theme of “The Ends of Romance?”. We are thinking about this topic in the broadest of terms and invite proposals from history, music, art history, theology, English, and language studies as well as any other areas of interest.The romances have often been considered to be an access point into the cultures of the medieval world, and we would be interested in examining why, how, and if we should be having such critical discussions. As a second strand to the conference we will also be examining penitential/ sacramental thinking and how it relates to these themes in the middle ages.Conference Website with a form for the “CFP” and information on fees, housing, travel, etc: http://domin.dom.edu/imam/
