12th Annual Symposium of the International Medieval Society, Paris


Dates: 25 -27 June 2015, Paris, France (Universit� de Paris I)
Deadline for Abstracts: 30 January 2015
Keynote Speakers: Emma Dillon (King�s College, London), Carol Symes (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), and Boris Bove (Universit� Paris VIII).

The International Medieval Society, Paris (IMS-Paris) invites abstracts and session proposals for our 2015 interdisciplinary symposium on the theme of cities in Medieval France. This symposium will approach new lines of investigation that will deepen our knowledge of medieval cities (11th � 15th centuries) not only in their cartographic and monumental dimensions, but also political and cultural ones.  In particular, we welcome proposals that discuss the uses of city space and their performative function.  For instance, the role of rituals and urban processions, and how music and theater contribute to the establishment of urban space in its practical use and representations. Proposals should focus on France between the eleventh and fifteenth centuries.  We encourage proposals and papers from all areas of medieval studies, such as musicology, anthropology, archeology, history, economic and social history, art history, gender studies, literary studies, philosophy, etc.

Proposals of 300 words or less (in English or French) for a 20-minute paper should be e-mailed to at no later than 30 January 2015. Each should be accompanied by full contact information, a CV, and a list of audiovisual equipment you require.
