Panels

We invite graduate students to submit abstracts for twenty-minute papers, to be organized in sessions. We ask that papers address Middle English texts while employing at least one old and one new methodology. Please explicitly indicate those methodologies in the abstract.

Potential avenues of approach might include linking codicology with ecocriticism; biographical criticism with affect theory; materialist historicism with the new materialisms; or traditional philological methods (lexicography, onomastics, meter) with the new formalism. Although we encourage participants to reflect critically on the methods they employ, we ask that papers ultimately seek to build a scholarly praxis out of such conjunctions, rather than simply affirming the relative value of an old or a new approach.

Please submit abstracts of one page in length to methodandme@gmail.com by November 1, 2015. For more information about the goals and organization of the conference, please see the full CFP here.
