medieval network

Calls for paper for The Mystical Theology Network Conference Art and Articulation: Illuminating the Mystical, Medieval and Modern which will be held at St Hilda's College, Oxford, on the 8th-9th January 2016. The relationship between word and image, and the ways in which medieval art (be it visual, literary, or both) operates as a means of expressing the inexpressible, will be explored in a two-day conference held 8th-9th January 2016 at St Hilda’s College, Oxford. This interdisciplinary conference will bring together art historians, theologians, and literary scholars to examine the ways in which various forms of artistic expression are used to articulate the mystical or that which cannot easily be spoken.

We welcome submissions for 20-minute papers and proposals for sessions of three 20-minute papers. We are particularly keen to ensure that the Anglo-Saxon period is well represented.

Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words to the conference organisers at artandarticulation@gmail.comby 1st September 2015.
