Call for Papers:
The Art of Medicine and the Social Arts
Convivium, The Siena Center for Medieval and Early Modern
Studies, is soliciting abstracts by September 15, 2001 for the
International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo 2002, on the following
topic: The Art of Medicine and the Social Arts.
Abstracts are invited that explore relationships between medicine,
science, and social class in the medieval and early modern periods. Thus
papers might address the relationship between visual and literary depictions
of illness or of the health practitioner; philosophical understandings
of the body, health, or disease as taught in the schools; or social attitudes
about the art of medicine as revealed in a variety of sources. Cross-disciplinary
papers are encouraged.
Reading time for papers should be no more than twenty minutes.
According to rules established by the Congress, those submitting abstracts
for one session may not submit abstracts for other sessions in the same
year. Because Kalamazoo has traditionally encouraged experiment, preliminary
exploration, and discussion, papers submitted should not have been read
elsewhere nor be scheduled for publication in the near future. Please
include any requests for A-V equipment, together with an assurance that
you will be present at the conference to read your paper in person. Please
include your e-mail, telephone and fax numbers, and snail mail addresses
for your home and office (or include the yellow "Abstract Cover Sheet"
provided in the Kalamazoo Call for Papers packet if one is available to
you). Please send abstracts either by e-mail or by snail mail to:
