CFP Chivalry Collection

Chivalry and the Medieval Past, call for submissions of essays 
Publication Date: 2012-08-31
Date Submitted: 2012-07-02
Announcement ID: 195520

This is a call for contributions to a volume of essays on the theme of chivalry and the medieval past, to be co-edited by Dr Barbara Gribling and Dr Katie Stevenson of the University of St Andrews. The volume will consider chivalry (in its broadest conception, inc. war, iconography, culture, material culture etc) across all periods but from the perspective of its roots in the Middle Ages. The emphasis of this volume is historical: we are not excluding literature, but ‘medievalism’ is well-served by scholars of literature. By drawing together the work of historians (medievalists, early modernist and modernists alike), we hope to open new vistas to the study of the medieval past. We are encouraging a diverse a collection as possible and we would also encourage you to think ambitiously and experimentally! If your work lends itself to some interesting ideas on this topic and you might be willing to contribute to the volume, please get in touch to find out more.
