Call for papers: NetMAR at ICM 2022

The international Network for Medieval Arts and Rituals (NetMAR) is seeking to organise a session at the 57th International Congress of Medieval Studies, Western Michigan University, 9-14 May, 2022. Drawing on the founding premise of NetMAR – that medieval arts (visual, performing, and literary) cannot be sufficiently or productively understood unless they are examined together and in relation to rituals and that rituals are better comprehended within the framework of their associated arts – the proposed session invites proposals for papers that investigate the intersections between medieval rituals and artworks (visual, performing, and literary). For more information, please contact: Stavroula Constantinou (konstans@ucy.ac.cy). For a full CFP, and for information on how to submit a proposal for this panel please keep reading below.
