33rd Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum call for papers

On April 20-21, 2012, Plymouth State University in central New Hampshire, will host the 33rd Annual Medieval and Renaissance Forum. The Forum is now accepting abstracts for papers to be presented at the conference.

The theme of the 2012 conference will be “Prophecy, Divination, Apocalypse.”

From the website:

We invite abstracts in medieval and Early Modern studies that consider how prophecy and divination functioned in personal, political, religious, and aesthetic realms. How did ideas about the future impact the present?  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.

Abstract deadline: January 16, 2012

Presenters and early registration: March 15, 2012
