Papers sought on “Love, Friendship, Marriage”

Dr. Karolyn Kinane has announced that Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire, is seeking scholarly papers and lectures for its 32nd Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum to be held April 15-16, 2011. The theme is “Love, Friendship, Marriage.”

Dr. Kinane writes:

We invite abstracts in medieval and Early Modern studies that consider how secular and religious love, affection, and devotion were perceived and expressed in a variety of contexts. Papers need not be confined to the theme, but may cover many aspects of medieval and Renaissance life, literature, languages, art, philosophy, theology, history and music. Student sessions with faculty sponsorship welcome.

The conference will conclude with a lesson in Renaissance dance and a performance by the Ken Pierce Dance Company. Students, faculty, and independent scholars are welcome.
