Institute of Documentology and Scholarly Editing

The Institute of Documentology and Scholarly Editing (IDE) organises
an international symposium on "Codicology and Palaeography in the
Digital Age" in Munich, 3/4 July 2009. Please find a brief
description below and more information including the preliminary
programme here:

You are all very welcome to participate.


CFP: Southeastern Medieval Association Annual Meeting (SEMA)
October 15-17, 2009
Submissions due: June 11, 2009

*Monstrous Binaries: Monster Theories in/at Play*

“It is conventional to call ‘monster’ any blending of dissonant
elements. I call ‘monster’ every original inexhaustible
beauty.”—Alfred Jarry, “Les Monstres”

Whether or not it is beautiful, the monster is certainly
inexhaustible. The BABEL Working Group invites submissions that
explore the inexhaustibility of literary monsters as they both demand
and defy binary characterizations. How might binary models explain,
occlude, or displace other monstrous possibilities? The invitation is
purposefully open and might include approaches that range from
postcolonial theory to Russian Formalism, from queer theory to
ecocriticism (and all points in between/beyond).

The panel will be a part of the 2009 SEMA conference, and its goal is
to bring together disparate readings of monsters, letting them
commingle, coexist, and (perhaps) coalesce for a few minutes.
Abstracts should be for papers fifteen minutes in length. They may
offer focused examinations of primary texts or more abstract,
theoretical discussions, but all submissions should make explicit
their theoretical genealogy.

A *partial* list of approaches might include: Kristeva, Foucault,
Girard, Plumwood, Derrida, Bakhtin, Lacan, Cohen, Levi-Strauss,
Deleuze and Guattari, Propp, Zizek, Canguilhem, Butler, and/or Freud.

Deadline for Submission: 11 June 2009

Send Abstracts (150-250 words) to:

Timothy Asay (tasay@uoregon.edu) or

Marcus Hensel (mhensel1@uoregon.edu)

Institute of Classical Studies Byzantine Colloquium

The annual Institute of Classical Studies Byzantine Colloquium will take
place, this year, on Saturday, 13 June. For logistical reasons it will
be held in the Lucas Theatre, King's College.
The theme is Turkey and the Byzantine. With the generous support of the
Institute and the Turkish Embassy, we will be hearing reports on
Byzantine excavations in Istanbul, including those at the Yeni Kapi
site, uncovering both the Theodosian Harbour, and also the neolithic
origins of habitation on the site. There will also be papers examining
the inheritance of the Byzantine in Ottoman culture.

Jocelyn Wogan-Browne (University of York) and Tony Edwards (De

/Knowing and Unknowing/

What did medieval peoples know about their world? What do we know
about the Middle Ages? We welcome papers on all aspects of the Middle
Ages, but we particularly encourage papers that consider the role of
knowledge. Suggested topics include medieval education, medieval
philosophies of what can and cannot be known, material artifacts such
as manuscripts that let us "know" more about the Middle Ages, the
exploitation of the Middle Ages by post-medieval scholars and
artists, the limits of knowledge in medieval literature, knowledge of
self, and knowledge (or lack thereof) of others.

MEARCSTAPA* plans to contribute to SEMA, and so we hereby request
papers for sessions on “knowing” that also fall under our common
umbrella of monstrosity (a horizontal aegis?). In keeping with the
theme of the conference, we solicit abstracts of 250 words or less
that would address the following potential idea sets:

Know Thy Self, Know Thy Other: Identifying (with) the Medieval Monstrous

When Categories Fail!: Taxonomies of the Unknowable

For consideration under the MEARCSTAPA umbrella, please submit
abstracts to Jeff Massey

(e-ddress below) no later than June 15^th .

Again, please send abstracts to: jmassey@molloy.edu
no later than June 15, 2009.

The fine folks at MEARCSTAPA look forward to hearing from you.

* MEARCSTAPA (Monsters: the Experimental Association for the Research
of Cryptozoology through Scholarly Theory And Practical Application)
is an organization committed to the scholarly examination of
monstrosity as an area of social and cultural interest to past and
present societies. Our inter/trans/post/pre-disciplinary approach
allows us to explore the significance of monstrosity across cultural,
temporal, and geographic boundaries. We are interested in a
multivalent approach using materials on monsters and monstrosity from
literary, artistic, philosophical, and historical sources.
