The study of the mester de clerecía is now 150 years old, and an international conference entitled “The Cleric’s Craft: Crossroads of Medieval Spanish Literature and Modern Critique” will be convened in 2015 to mark this important milestone, to reassess this literature and its study, as well as to chart new directions for the field.
In the beautiful fall weather of the U.S Southwest, scholars from a variety of disciplines and from across the globe will gather at the bilingual campus (Spanish and English) of The University of Texas at El Paso to mark this important milestone, to reassess this literature and its study, as well as to chart new directions for the field.
The organizers seek proposals for 20-minute papers on all aspects of this literature and the context in which it was produced. Papers from related fields (history, musicology, art history, comparative literature, historical linguistics, etc.) are especially welcome.
The focus sessions listed under the “Speakers” section of this website were pre-organized, but the general call for papers for the conference is open and will remain open until June 1, 2015. Please submit an abstract as soon as possible via the form below. If you should experience problems in the submission process, or if you fail to receive a confirmation email about your abstract submission, please contact the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org, and visit the website at clerecia150.at.utep.edu.
