CFS: Healing in Middle Ages

Medica, the Society for the Study of Healing in the Middle Ages invites submissions for a panel entitled, “Healing Journeys: Travelling for Body and Soul in Late Medieval Culture” at the Leeds International Medieval Congress, 12-15 July 2010. We encourage a broad interpretation of the theme from a variety of disciplines, such as history of medicine, literary studies, material culture and religious history. Papers may consider:

  • Portable Healing,
  • Physiology and the Ages of Man, 
  • Bodily and Spiritual Journeys for Healing, 
  • Representations of the Body and Medical Healing in Otherworldly Journeys, 
  • Medical Pilgrims and their Detractors.

Please send proposals for twenty minute papers (title and abstract of 250-500 words) by email to Virginia Langum  by 1 September 2009.
