Prophecy, Divination, Apocalypse

Plymouth State University Medieval and Renaissance Forum

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 16 janvier 2012

 

The 33rd Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum will be held at Plymouth State University on Friday and Saturday April 20-21, 2012.

The organizers invite abstracts in medieval and Early Modern studies that consider how prophecy and divination functioned in personal, political, religious, and aesthetic realms. How did ideas about the future impact the present? Papers need not be confined to the theme but may cover many aspects of medieval and Renaissance life, literature, languages, art, philosophy, theology, history and music.

This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Michael A. Ryan, historian of Medieval and Early Modern Spain at the University of New Mexico. Dr. Ryan, an award-winning teacher, has published widely on dreams, prophecy, the Antichrist, and the Apocalypse. His most recent book, “A Kingdom of Stargazers: Astrology, Divination, and Authority in the Late Medieval Crown of Aragon,” will be published by Cornell University Press in Fall 2011.

Students, faculty, and independent scholars are welcome. Undergraduate student sessions require faculty sponsorship. Abstracts may be submitted in English or Spanish.

The deadline for abstracts is January 16, 2012. For more information visit http://www.plymouth.edu/medieval.
