Another Leeds CFP

As if the beheadings weren’t enough, I seem to have cooked up a medieval-isms type session proposal with Amy Burge.

Gender and Medieval Otherness

Gender difference has generally been conceived as binary – identities and roles of masculinity and femininity are defined by their difference from one another. So too has the Middle Ages often been seen as ‘other’ – as strange and unfamiliar to an apparently more liberated ‘modernity’. We seek proposals for 15-20 minute papers that deal with any aspect of these connected strands of ‘otherness’ – gender and the ‘medieval’. We welcome proposals focusing on medievalism and post-medieval sources, as well as comparative approaches to medieval sources.

Please submit abstracts of approximately 200 words to Amy Burge ( and Amy Brown ( by Monday 26th September.
