The Southeastern Medieval Association (SEMA) will hold its 2020 conference on November 5-7, 2020, with the theme of “Medieval Passions and Proclivities.” Proposals are welcome for individual papers, whole sessions, or round tables on the conference theme. Papers might consider any interpretation of medieval passions, interests, habits and obsessions, both religious and secular, and may include the impact or permutations of such passions in later periods.
Proposals for individual papers should be limited to 300 words. Session proposals or round tables should include abstracts for the three papers for a session, or 5-6 abstracts for a round table, as well as the contact information for all presenters. Please include requests for technology with proposals.
Abstracts on any aspect of medieval studies are welcome, but we will give preference to submissions related to the conference theme. Please submit proposals to Natalie Grinnell at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 June, 2020.
