Convivium:  the Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Siena
College invites session and paper proposals for its first annual
interdisciplinary conference, October 13-14, 2000. The Center welcomes
papers that explore any topic related to the study and teaching of the
Middle Ages and Renaissance and especially those that focus on this year's
themes of power and pageantry. Papers may address, for example, the role
of pageantry in such things as coronation rites, warfare, drama, or
liturgies; or the relationship between power and pageantry in medieval and
renaissance life, or the role of power in politics, social order, gender
roles; or other relevant topics.

PUBLICATION OPPORTUNITIES: Selected papers related to the conference theme
will be considered for publication.
