‘Mortality and Imagination: the Life of the Dead in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance’ September 2012, Stellenbosch

The 21st Biennial Conference of the Southern African Society for Medieval and Renaissance Studies will be held at Mont Fleur, Stellenbosch, South Africa, from 30 August to 2 September 2012.
The theme of the conference is ‘Mortality and Imagination: The Life of the Dead in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance’. In an effort to facilitate a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary conversation, we encourage scholars working in any discipline to submit abstracts addressing this theme. A selection of the papers presented at the conference will be published in a special issue of the Southern African Journal of Medieval and Renaissance Studies (accredited for South African research subsidy purposes).
Please send proposals (250-300 words) for 20-minute papers to Professor David Scott-Macnab by 31 January 2012.
