This will be the 2020 conference at the University of Arizona, Tucson, the first weekend of May. Any paper dealing with the universal themes of imprisonment, freedom, slavery, etc. will be welcome, pertaining to the Middle Ages and the early modern age (loosely defined). This can pertain to actual imprisonment as a punishment, torture, etc., it can also pertain to slavery, servitude, or indenture. Many times, courtly poets have also drawn from the concept of imprisonment, either literally or metaphorically, to express their personal suffering, either as lovers or in political terms.
