Memory and Commemoration

The Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and Early 
Modern Studies (ANZAMEMS) will hold its fourth conference from 5-8 
February 2003 at The University of Melbourne, Australia. The 
conference theme is 'Memory and Commemoration'. We hope to attract 
papers that reflect on such topics as forms of commemoration and ways 
of remembering across time and space; on modern creation and 
recollection of medieval and early modern pasts; on historical, 
literary and artistic representations of memory; on the material and 
ritual culture of commemorating the living and dead,  past events and 
mythic occurrences; on genealogies, tradition and familial memory, 

The programming committee invites proposals (150 words) for 20 minute 
papers. Please send your title, abstract and a preliminary indication 
of any audio-visual requirements to the convenor, Megan Cassidy-Welch
  (email:,  by Friday 6 September, 2002.

We also invite members of the society to put together their own 
panels. Proposals for such panels, including a title and a call for 
papers (150 words), should reach the committee by Friday 12 May, 
2002. See the conference website 
for further details regarding the organisation and structure of panels.
