> Rethinking Medieval Liturgy: New Approaches across Disciplines
> 18–19 June 2010, London
> The study of medieval liturgy has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years. As the lines between various kinds of cultural studies have become increasingly blurred, musicologists, art historians, literary scholars, and historians have realised its centrality and importance. Liturgy provides fundamental insights into the experience of worship and devotion in the middle ages, as the medium through which religious ideas were transmitted. There is now a need, we believe, to find coherent expression and a voice for the emerging generation of students of the liturgy, by breaking institutional and disciplinary boundaries, and by bringing so-called para-liturgical genres, such as drama, hagiography, and sermons, as well as art and architecture, back into their liturgical contexts.
> To this purpose, we are holding a two-day international workshop for post-graduate students from a variety of disciplines on the subject of medieval liturgy. It will include a training session in recent developments of liturgical studies, led by acclaimed professor Susan Boynton of the Department of Music at Columbia University. Proposals are invited from researchers who are engaged in or have recently finished their post-graduate studies.
> Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
> - Theories of ritual and their application to medieval liturgy
> - Musicology and music history
> - Art and architecture as related to liturgy
> - Worship and devotion as cultural phenomena
> - Liturgy in the history of religious institutions
> - Christianization and reform
> - Liturgy and material culture
> - The social role of liturgy
> - Hagiography, sermons and drama – in their liturgical contexts
> - Manuscripts and the representation of liturgical texts
> Papers will be 20 min. in length. Individual paper proposals (papers and proposals should be in English) to a maximum of 300 words should be sent by 1 March, 2010 to:
> Kati Ihnat (Queen Mary, University of London): firstname.lastname@example.org
> Erik Niblaeus (King’s College London): email@example.com
> If you have other queries concerning the workshop, please do not hesitate to contact either of the above.
> The workshop will take place in London at the Lock-keeper’s Cottage, Queen Mary, University of London, E1 4NS, from Friday June 18 (10am) to Saturday June 19 (5pm) 2010. Application for AHRC funding pending.
