Medievalism Transformed 2010: Readers, Listeners and Owners of Books in the Middle Ages and Beyond

*Call for Papers*

Plenary speaker Ian Rumbold: 'Hermann Pƶtzlinger's Library'

The conference includes a workshop on the Bangor Pontifical manuscript

The Sixth Annual Medievalism Transformed Conference will be held on
the 11th of June 2010 at Bangor University. This is an
interdisciplinary postgraduate conference accepting papers on studies
in the medieval period, especially literature, history, theology, art
and music; other subjects will be considered as well.
We welcome proposals on the theme of the medieval audience: modes in
which a text is presented to the public and interactions between the
author and the book reader, listener or owner.
Suggested topics are as follows, but not limited to:
? Presentation methods of medieval text, e.g. performance and reading
? Editorial revision as the first response
? Target audience identified through dedication, patronage or
addresses in the text
? Miscellanies and book collections indicating the audience reading tastes
? Additions to text through music, illumination and marginalia
? Interpretation and use of medieval books in post-medieval context

Please send a 200-250 words abstract to
medievalismtransformed@bangor.ac.uk by the 25th of May 2010 to be
considered for the presentation of a 20 minute paper with 5 minutes
for questions. Together with the abstract, please include a short
paragraph (up to 50 words) describing your area of study, institution
and contact information.
