Call for Papers: International Society for the Study of Medievalism

On behalf of the International Society for the Study of Medievalism, Brock University is hosting the 2018 International Conference on Medievalism.

ISSM 2018 Boundary Crossings
October 12-13, 2018
Brock University, St. Catharines, ON, Canada

St Catharines, Ontario, Canada, the location of Brock University, is just 19 kilometres from the Niagara River, the boundary between Canada and the United States of America. In this location, then, it seems appropriate to think about medievalism and boundary crossing. Plenary sessions will cross disciplinary boundaries by investigating similarities in concerns, methods, and themes between the fields of (neo)medievalism(s) and the Neo-Victorian. For regular conference sessions, proposals are invited on the conference theme. Papers might address the ways in which medievalism crosses the boundaries of, or is used to interrogate the boundaries of

• genres/subgenres
• national designations
• temporal periods
• academic disciplines
• the academic and the popular
• gender
• sexuality
• class
• race
• human / non-human

Please send one-page abstracts or session proposals to Dr. Ann F. Howey, Associate Professor at Brock University (, by April 10, 2018.
