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 firstname.lastname@example.org by 2 September 2013. Please include your name and affiliation (if applicable). If you would like to participate in the pedagogy round table, please express your interest to the committee at the same email address.
Deadline for abstract submissions is 2 Septemper 2013. Any questions or queries can be emailed to email@example.com.
