We invite proposals dealing with any aspect of medieval narratives. The practice of telling stories is not universal or transparent, and is highly dependent on the medium of transmission and on changing understandings of temporality. What strategies did medieval historians, artists, and storytellers employ to tell narratives? Does storytelling in the Middle Ages always unfold in a linear fashion? How do medievalists today theorize medieval narratives both historically and in the light of new approaches to narrative that are derived from postmedieval technologies (print, film, digital culture)? What different purposes are accomplished by the (re)telling of narratives? We invite papers from medievalists in all disciplines that consider these and/or other questions related to the representation of narratives in texts and art, including chronicles, historical, legal, scientific, and theological documents, imaginative fiction, and manuscript illuminations. Preference is given to submissions closely related to the conference theme, but abstracts on any aspect of medieval studies are welcomed. Proceedings will be published in Essays in Medieval Studies.Proposals for whole sessions as well as individual papers are welcome. Three-paper sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes, including 20 minutes for each paper and time for discussion. Visit our website for more information, including registration information. [://]
