    Call for Papers

    Perceptions of the Past / Visions of the Future
    An Interdisciplinary Conference
    February 22, 2003

    Nearly all world cultures view the present in relation to concepts of past
    and future. Origins and end-times book-end the present and provide vanishing
    points for perspectives on the present, past and future. Proposed papers
    should explore aspects of how medieval cultures related their present to the
    past and the future. Discussions of literary settings and historical studies
    are a natural starting point for inquiry into this topic, but studies could
    explore a broad range of ways in which medieval women and men depicted or
    commemorated past events, or presented visions of the future in the medieval
    present. Technologies of time-keeping, calendars, genealogy, and the social
    and legal implications of past and future time are among many topics which
    may be investigated.

    Deadline for abstracts (1 page maximum): September 16, 2002

    Abstracts may be submitted by e-mail, fax or post. Please address them to
    the attention of the 2003 CMS Conference Committee.
