A. 簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
此「性別和位置,空間和邊界」的主題由1980年代成立的The Gender & Medieval Studies (GMS) 「性別和中世紀研究」所主辦。今年會議的場地訂在近坎特伯里大教堂的坎特伯里基督大學。大會主題包含了性別和中世紀地理、文化、社會、空間和想像的地點之間的關係,以及探索性別和其限制。藉由透過性別鏡頭來觀察地方和空間的重要性/物質性,鼓勵關於性別如何透過網絡、物件(例如遺物)、個人、社區和交流變得既穩定又不穩定的議題以及性別相關的中世紀跨學科對話。

This is a Call for Papers for a three-day conference on the theme of ‘Gender and Place, Space, and Liminalities’ hosted by the long-running Gender and Medieval Studies Conference Series.
This year our venue is Canterbury Christ Church University which is on the site of St Augustine’s Abbey (founded in 613) close to Canterbury Cathedral.
We are looking for papers that explore the relationships between gender and medieval geographical, cultural, social, spatial, and imagined locations – as well as those which explore aspects of gender and liminalities. In viewing the materiality of place and space through the lens of gender, we wish to encourage both cross- and trans-disciplinary discourses concerning how gender is rendered stable and unstable via networks, objects (relics for example), individuals, communities, and exchanges in the Middle Ages.
Keynote speakers: Anthony Bale, Leonie Hicks, Sheila Sweetinburgh
Topics to consider may include, but are not limited to:
  • Gender and the politics of medieval architectural spaces
  • Methodologies and meanings of gender and liminalities
  • Gendered networks
  • Queer spaces
  • Thresholds, boundary-breaking and boundary-stepping
  • Materiality of sites and gender
  • Questioning gender roles in places of production, commerce, shopping, and patronage
  • Gendered and transgendered liminal spaces in medieval books as objects and as literature
  • The role of space and place in gendered activities and behaviours
  • Gendering in medieval performance, music, drama, rituals, pilgrimage, and processions
  • Gendered network
  • Places of crime and punishment
The conference will employ a range of formats: three keynote lectures, a practitioner-led drama workshop, round-tables, and panel sessions. There will be opportunities to explore Canterbury’s unique standing archaeology and attend Cathedral Evensong (the modern equivalent of the medieval monastic office of Compline).
