Call for Papers for LUCAS Conference 'Practices in Comparative Medievalism' on 23 September 2022
This one-day conference, organised by the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society (LUCAS), invites you to share your research ideas and results in practices of comparative medievalism in arts and culture. We therefore invite contributions of papers that analyse cultural representations of the Middle Ages from the Early Modern period until the present.
This conference is organised to provide an environment for students, researchers, and enthusiasts to discuss ideas and foster contributions in the area of comparative medievalism. The event will take place at Leiden University, the Netherlands. Leiden is a beautiful city with a fascinating medieval heritage of its own.
We welcome abstracts of 300 words in the areas covered by LUCAS and its connected research centres, including cultural studies, literary studies, film studies, art history, theatre and performance, architecture, and expressions of popular culture. The conference is open to all academics and interested participants, and we specifically encourage students and early-career researchers to submit proposals for presentations (15 minutes) on a topic of their choice relating to the conference theme.
