CFP - Technology in Medieval Literature...

Type: Call for Papers
Date: --
International Medieval Congress, Kalamazoo, Michigan, May 12-15, 2011
International Medieval Congress, Leeds, UK, July 11-14, 2011.

Two AVISTA-sponsored sessions on \"Technology in Medieval Literature\",
one each at the Medieval Congresses at Kalamazoo and at Leeds in
2010, offer a venue for literary scholars to contemplate where and
how technology appears in medieval romances, sagas, fabulae, and
other forms, as well as technology’s meanings, importance, and change
over time. Recent work on early modern technology and literature
(e.g. Cohen’s Shakespeare and Technology (Palgrave 2006) has shown
both the value of this approach, but also highlighted its
difficulties and pitfalls, an additional element we hope to bring out
in this session.

The Association Villard de Honnecourt for Interdisciplinary Study of
Medieval Technology, Science, and Art (AVISTA) is a scholarly
organization dedicated to any and all medieval topics which relate to
the practical sciences or technologies. For more information on it,
see its website:
