The 18th Annual ACMRS Conference
16–18 February 2012 in Tempe, Arizona
Erotica and the Erotic in the Middle Ages and Renaissance
ACMRS invites session and paper proposals for its annual
interdisciplinary conference to be held 16–18 February, 2012 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 erotica and the erotic, 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
Professor Albrecht Classen, University Distinguished Professor, The
University of Arizona. Professor Classen's keynote address is titled
"The Erotic and the Quest for Happiness in the Middle Ages. What
Everybody Does and Hardly Anyone Truly Achieves." He has a broad range
of research interests covering the history of German and European
literature and culture from about 800 to 1800.
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 16, 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
