Drawing medievalists from over 50 countries, with over 1,800 individual papers and 650 academic sessions and a wide range of concerts, performances, readings, round tables, excursions, bookfair and associated events, the Leeds International Medieval Congress is Europe's largest annual gathering in the humanities.
Call for Paper Proposals:
Does your research involve names (of people, of places, of things)? Does this research have a cross-cultural or cross-linguistic element? Do you want to present at one of the largest, most exciting medievalist conferences in the world? The Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources, http://dmnes.org/, is organizing sessions for the 2016 Leeds International Medieval Congress (July 4-6, 2016, Leeds, England) with a focus on cross-linguistic onomastics. Many onomastic studies focus on a single time and place, providing a detailed linguistic and social analysis of the names from a narrow data set. While there is no doubt these studies provide valuable information, in our sessions we seek to go beyond a narrow, mono-cultural approach. We stress the importance of looking beyond a single social/cultural/linguistic context in conducting onomastic research and are looking for paper proposals on any aspect of onomastics — place-name studies, anthroponymy, names of organizations, buildings, ships, guilds, etc. — which includes an emphasis on the comparison of data across linguistic, social, geographical, and temporal boundaries.
Please submit proposals to eicdmnes.org no later than September 10, 2015. Proposals should include the following information:
- Title of presentation
- Language of delivery (Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Italiano, or Latina)
- Name and title of presenter
- Full address
- 100-200 word abstract
Authors will be notified whether their proposal will be included in the DMNES’s proposal to the IMC by September 20, 2015.
Questions may be directed to eicdmnes.org.
