Call for Papers Goodly Worlds: Places, Topoi, and Global Riches
The Rocky Mountain Medieval and Renaissance Association invites papers for its annual interdisciplinary conference to be held on 4-7 June 1998 at Big Sky, Montana. The conference offers an opportunity for scholars to explore topics related to the study and teaching of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This year's topic is "Goodly Worlds: Places, Topoi, and Global Riches," with emphasis upon sites of medieval and Renaissance knowledge and power -- geographical, rhetorical, economic, political, scientific, artistic, and cultural. The Big Sky Ski and Summer Resort is a luxury resort with golf, tennis, swimming, mountain biking, and whitewater rafting. The scenic resort is just forty-five miles north of spectacular Yellowstone National Park, the nation's oldest national park, with sites such as Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone; and forty-five miles south of the town of Bozeman, home of the Museum of the Rockies, with its internationally recognized dinosaur collection. Send two copies of proposals for complete sessions to the conference organizers by 1 December 1997. Send two copies of papers or 250-word abstracts by 28 February 1998.
