"Fear and Its Representations in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance"

CALL FOR PAPERS **DEADLINE October 1, 1999**

The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Arizona State
University invites session and paper proposals for its sixth annual
interdisciplinary conference, February 17–19, 2000. The Center welcomes
papers that explore any topic related to the study and teaching of the
Middle Ages and Renaissance and especially those that focus on this year’s
theme of fear. Papers may address, for example, the role fear of such
things as torture, the exchange of hostages, public punishment, and
dismemberment plays as a deterrent in secular matters; or they may
investigate literal fear, such as fear of hell and damnation, fear of
battle, fear of love, and fear of losing love, or other relevant topics.
The plenary speaker will be R. I. Moore (University of Newcastle), author
of _The Formation of a Persecuting Society: Power and Deviance in Western
Europe, 950–1250_ (1987) and _The Origins of European Dissent_ (1977).

Selected papers related to the conference theme will be considered for
publication in 
the sixth volume of the “Arizona Studies in the Middle Ages and the
series, published by Brepols Publishers (Belgium). Papers dealing with any
of the Mediterranean region will be considered for publication in the journal
Mediterranean Studies, sponsored by the University of Massachusetts at
Dartmouth, the Medieval and Renaissance Collegium (MARC) at the University
of Michigan, and ACMRS at Arizona State University.

The conference will also host "The Medieval Book: A Workshop in
Codicological Practice." This pre-conference, half-day workshop led by
Richard Clement, University of Kansas, will focus on the making of the
medieval codex. Participants will discuss the production of parchment,
paper, pens, and ink, and then will make several quires in preparation for
writing. Note: This workshop does not cover scripts and is not calligraphic.

All general sessions will held at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel, a luxury
featuring swimming pool, tennis courts, sauna, and proximity to numerous
in the Phoenix-Scotsdale-Tempe area. The hotel is just two blocks from
Arizona State 
University and 15 minutes from Phoenix International airport. The high
temperature in 
the “Valley of the Sun” during February averages 70 degrees.

The conference registration fee is just $60 ($35 for students) and includes
welcoming and concluding receptions, two days of concurrent sessions,
concert, and keynote address.

By October 1, 1999, send two copies of session proposals or one-page
abstracts, along with two copies of your current c.v. and the audio-visual
