CFP - Transitions of Power

Type: Call for Papers
Date: --
CFP: \"Transitions of Power\" at the International Medieval Congress in
Kalamazoo, Michigan May 13-16, 2010

Seigneurie, the society for the study of lordship in the middle ages,
invites paper proposals for a panel entitled \"Transitions of Power.\" Our
goal is to create a forum in which to uncover commonalities and contrasts of
this difficult and recurrent stage in the histories of noble lineages and
lordships by bringing together scholars working on different regions, eras,
and disciplines. Papers might address (but are, of course, not limited to):

--the strategies employed to ease the peaceful transference of a lordship

--disputes over succession

--the composition and activities of regencies

--the responsibilities and practices of guardians

--the roles sex and gender played in transitions of power

--considerations of age, marital status, social ranking within the nobility,
or vocation

--similar topics of your own devising

Please submit a one-page abstract (for a 20-minute paper) with contact
information (name, postal address, email, and affiliation) and a list of the
audio-visual equipment you will require to either Katie Sjursen
( or Don Fleming ( by September 15,

Also, if you have an interest in medieval lordship, please do stop by our
business meeting, time and place to be determined by the Kalamazoo Powers
That Be. All are welcome.
