CFP for MLA 2018 in New York: Medieval and Renaissance Terms of Endearment.
Seeking proposals to a non-guaranteed session about kinship terminology or terms of endearment used for friends and foes. For example, in The Song of Roland, characters use sarcasm to describe enemies as friends, and interestingly, demeaning monikers are used to chastise friends. What do these epithets say about the cultural boundaries between friends and enemies in medieval and renaissance literature? Please send 500 word proposal and CV by 20 March 2017 to Pamela Kirkpatrick (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Also, please email questions or comments. If proposal is accepted, attendant must be an MLA member by 7 April 2017, per MLA guidelines.
Medieval, Medieval French, Creative Writing and Medievalism, Renaissance and Early Modern, German to 1700
