Call for Papers: New England Medieval Consortium 2024: “Books and Transgressions,” Boston College, June 15, 2024 (Conference: November 16, 2024)

June 15

This conference will provide an opportunity for medievalists working across a range of disciplines and geographic areas to join in conversation about premodern cultures of the book, boundary- crossing, and the law and other normative cultural expressions.”  This year’s theme is “transgressions.”  “We interpret “transgressions” broadly, including the notions of access, trespass, and desire. Accordingly, we welcome papers from medievalists in any discipline, concerned with any region or polity of Europe, Asia, or Africa.”

Professor Ahmed El Shamsy (University of Chicago) will be one of the keynote speakers.  The conference will be held on November 16, 2024.  The deadline to submit abstracts (of 300 words) is June 15, 2024.  Abstracts should be sent via email to medieval2024@gmail.com.
