Language, Literature, and Interdisciplinary Studies (LLIDS), an open access academic e-journal, invites original and unpublished research papers from various interrelated disciplines including, but not limited to, philosophy, psychology, anthropology, history, literature, sociology, law, ecology, environmental science, and economics.
This is an international symposium, discussing an important, but mostly ignored area of pre-modern life, that is, pleasure and leisure, combined with an investigation of toys, games, and entertainment. In our research we tend to focus on courtly life, knighthood, the Church, courtly literature, war, politics, economics, and travel. However, just as today, people in the past also needed entertainment, enjoyment, fun, and games. Those were also mentioned in the literary sources and are reflected, to some extent, in visual documents.
SMFS sponsored session at Leeds, IMC, July 2018 on Women, Memory and Material Culture. We are seeking papers that address the various ways women were involved in commemoration (personal or familial) considering in particular how the end product of their efforts (literary, artistic or architectural) may have been gendered or shaped by considerations unique to women. These panels seek to foster a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approach to understanding women’s roles in material commemoration and are open to any region in the world.
