The 16th Annual ACMRS Conference - Call for Papers
Humanity and the Natural World
in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
11 - 13 February 2010 in Tempe, Arizona
ACMRS invites session and paper proposals for its annual
interdisciplinary conference to be held February 11 - 13, 2010 in Tempe,
Arizona. We welcome 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 humanity and the natural world, both
in literal and metaphorical manifestations.
Selected papers related to the conference theme will be considered for
publication in the conference volume of the Arizona Studies in the
Middle Ages and the Renaissance series, published by Brepols Publishers
The conference keynote speaker will be Pamela O. Long, an independent
historian who has published widely in late medieval and Renaissance
history of science and technology, and intellectual history. Her recent
works includes Obelisk: A History (co-authored with Brian Curran,
Anthony Grafton, and Benjamin Weiss, MIT Press, 2009); and a three
volume edition, translation, and group of studies of a book written by a
fifteenth century oarsman: The Book of Michael of Rhodes: A
Fifteenth-Century Maritime Manuscript (co-edited with David McGee and
Alan Stahl, MIT Press, 2009). She is at work on a cultural history of
engineering in late sixteenth-century Rome.
Before the conference, ACMRS will host a workshop on manuscript studies
to be led by Timothy Graham, Director of the Institute for Medieval
Studies at the University of New Mexico. The workshop will be Thursday
afternoon, February 11, and participation will be limited to 25
participants, who will be determined by the order in which registrations
are received. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with \"conference workshop\" as the
subject line to be added to the list. The cost of the workshop is $25
and is in addition to the regular conference registration fee.
The conference registration fee is $95 ($45 for students and emeriti/ae
faculty) and includes welcoming and farewell receptions, two days of
concurrent sessions (Friday and Saturday), and keynote address. Please
note that there will be an opening reception Thursday evening, but there
will be no sessions that day.

October 2009. Proposals must include audio/visual requirements and any
other special requests. In order to streamline the committee review
