CITATION, INTERTEXTUALITY, MEMORY IN THE MIDDLE AGES (Exeter Conference, 29-30 January)

CITATION, INTERTEXTUALITY, MEMORY IN THE MIDDLE AGES: TEXT, MUSIC, IMAGE

29-30 January 2009
University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Reed Hall

Recent books on memory in the Middle Ages are stimulating the interest of scholars across a range of disciplines. The theme of citation and intertextuality continues to attract attention, especially that of literary studies but equally scholars from other disciplines concerned with the Middle Ages, including history, art history, religious studies, musicology. This conference’s aim is to stimulate further scrutiny of these themes with papers exploring intertextual practices and manifestations of borrowings, modellings, allusions, and other evocations of pre-existing material, and on the overall role of memory in medieval culture.

We wish to remind you all of this upcoming conference, which should be of interest to scholars and graduate students in a range of disciplines. Twenty papers will be presented by specialists in medieval literature, art, music, history, liturgy, and book history, including Sarah Kay (Princeton), Lina Bolzoni (Pisa), Anna Maria Busse Berger (UC Davis), Wim Verbaal (Ghent), Barton Palmer (Clemson), Jacques Boogaart (Amsterdam), Emma Cayley (Exeter), and Naomi Howell (Exeter).

The full programme is available here. The conference will run for two full days, and on the evening of Thursday 29 there will be a reception and a concert on the theme of ‘Citation and Memory’ that will present some of the musical works discussed in some of the papers, amongst others.
