Call for Papers
Perceptions of the Past / Visions of the Future
An Interdisciplinary Conference
February 22, 2003
Nearly all world cultures view the present in relation to concepts of past
and future. Origins and end-times book-end the present and provide vanishing
points for perspectives on the present, past and future. Proposed papers
should explore aspects of how medieval cultures related their present to the
past and the future. Discussions of literary settings and historical studies
are a natural starting point for inquiry into this topic, but studies could
explore a broad range of ways in which medieval women and men depicted or
commemorated past events, or presented visions of the future in the medieval
present. Technologies of time-keeping, calendars, genealogy, and the social
and legal implications of past and future time are among many topics which
may be investigated.
Deadline for abstracts (1 page maximum): September 16, 2002
Abstracts may be submitted by e-mail, fax or post. Please address them to
the attention of the 2003 CMS Conference Committee.
