Call for Papers and Sessions

34th Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum
Plymouth State University
Plymouth, NH, USA

Friday and Saturday April 19-20, 2013

“Travel, Contact, Exchange”

Keynote speaker: David Simon, Art History, Colby College

We invite abstracts in medieval and Early Modern studies that consider how travel, contact, and
exchange functioned in personal, political, religious, and aesthetic realms.
● How, when, where, and why did cultural exchange happen?
● What are the roles of storytelling or souvenirs in experiences of pilgrimage or Crusade?
● What is exchanged, lost, or left behind in moments of contact?
● How do such moments of contact and exchange hold meaning today?

Papers need not be confined to the theme but may cover many aspects of medieval and Renaissance
life, literature, languages, art, philosophy, theology, history and music.

Students, faculty, and independent scholars are welcome.
Undergraduate student papers or sessions require faculty sponsorship.

This year’s keynote speaker is David L. Simon. He is Jetté Professor of Art at Colby College, where he has
received the Basset Award for excellence in teaching. He holds graduate degrees from Boston University
and the Courtauld Institute of Art of the University of London. Among his publications are the catalogue
of Spanish and southern French Romanesque sculpture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The
Cloisters and studies on Romanesque architecture and sculpture in Aragon and Navarra, Spain. He is coauthor
of recent editions of Janson’s History of Art: The Western Tradition and Janson’s Basic History of
Western Art. Since 2007 he has co-directed an annual summer course and conference on Romanesque
art for the University of Zaragoza, Spain.
