The Angel and the Muse (Villanova Conference)

ND Medieval Institute alumnus Michael Waddell (Ph.D. 2000, Medieval Philosophy), who is on the planning committee for a conference at Villanova, sent in a call for papers. (Note that the dates overlap with our own SIEPM conference, but I think there are enough medievalists to go around if the recent 3,000-person gathering at Kalamazoo is any indication.) Here are the details.

The organizers of Villanova's Patristic, Medieval, and Renaissance Studies Conference (PMR) invite all Notre Dame medievalists to participate in the 33rd annual PMR (October 10-12, 2008).

The theme of this year's conference will be "The Angel and the Muse: Inspiration, Revelation, Prophecy." Keynote addresses will be delivered by Peter S. Hawkins (Religion and Literature, Yale Divinity School) and Michael Sells (Islamic Studies, University of Chicago Divinity School). While the keynote addresses and several sessions will examine the conference theme, the conference welcomes submissions on all topics in late antiquity/patristics, Byzantine Studies, Medieval Studies, Islamic Studies, Jewish Studies, and Renaissance and Reformation Studies.
