CFP: Gender and Medieval Studies Conference, Winchester

Deadline: 2 September 2013

9-11 January 2014 at University of Winchester

The Gender & Medieval Studies (GMS) Group is a UK-based organization devoted solely to putting together an annual interdisciplinary conference, which furthers the study of medieval gender. The conference is an annual peripatetic event that has been running since at least the late 1980s (oral history suggests that it was running in 1987 at the latest) and traditionally takes place in early January.

The
 2014
 Gender
 and
 Medieval
 Studies
 Conference 
welcomes 
a 
range 
of 
multifaceted 
or
interdisciplinary
 approaches 
to 
the 
topic 
of 
Gender 
and 
Status 
in 
the 
Middle 
Ages. The
examination 
of 
both 
femininities 
and 
masculinities, 
individually 
or 
in 
conjunction 
to 
each 
other,
with 
theoretical 
or 
interpretive 
approaches 
from
 literature, 
history,
 art 
history, 
archaeology, 
music, 
history, 
philosophy, 
theology 
or 
any
 related
 discipline
 are
 especially
 desired. We
 would
 also
 like
 to
 offer
 early‐stage 
postgraduate
 students
 the
 opportunity
 to
 share
 their
 research
 in
 progress
 through
 poster
 presentations.

The 
GMS
 2014
 will include 
a
 round 
table 
on 
gender 
and 
pedagogy, 
and 
we
 are 
seeking 
academics
with
 teaching 
experience
 from
 a
 wide 
range 
of 
disciplines 
to 
participate.


Proposals
 are invited for 
20‐minute 
papers 
or 
posters
 on
 any
 aspect
 of 
this
 topic. Please 
e‐mail
proposals
 of 
approximately
 250 
words 
(or 
for 
sessions, 
250‐500 
words 
including participants’
 names
 and
 paper
 titles)
 to
 gmswinchester2014@gmail.com
 by
 2 September
 2013.
 Please include your name and affiliation (if applicable). If
 you 
would 
like
 to
 participate 
in
 the
 pedagogy
 round
 table,
