Michigan Medieval Seminar: Environmental Histories

Speakers and venues are forthcoming.

Mediating the Sacred and Secular in the Medieval and Early Modern Period

The Early Modern Colloquium, a graduate interdisciplinary group at the University of Michigan, will host a conference on the conceptualizations of the sacred and secular during the Medieval and Early Modern periods. This conference will engage with issues of periodicity through questions of secular versus sacred authority both during and between these eras. More specifically, it will investigate particular literary representations that negotiate and mediate the divide of the sacred and the secular in Medieval and Early Modern Europe.

 Keynote speakers will be Nancy Warren (English, Texas A&M) and Sara Poor (German, Princeton).
