A. 簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
    此主題集中在兩位最著名的蘇格蘭皇后,聖瑪格麗特(d. 1093)和瑪麗(d. 1587),探索中世紀時期文學和視覺文化中,女性帶來的威脅如何被再現和被抵銷。到目前為止,對於瑪格麗特較嚴肅的研究少見,而且在研究瑪麗的惡名和死亡之外較少有進一步關於她的研究。這會議旨在探索這兩位著名的皇后在文學和歷史上如何被呈現,以及蘇格蘭皇后在整個中世紀期間的影響力,進而吸引關於中世紀性別角色的討論。
[Original CFP]
This conference will focus on the two most famous Queens of Scots, St Margaret (d.1093) and Mary (d. 1587), exploring how female threat is represented and – potentially – neutralised in literature and visual culture across the medieval period. To date, little serious academic study of Margaret has been undertaken, and further study into Mary beyond her infamy and demise has been limited. This conference seeks to both promote and explore the two most famous queens of Scots, both in terms of their literary and historical representation and in terms of their impact on the representation of Scottish queenship throughout the medieval period. We wish to encourage study into the way prominent women, especially queens, attracted discussion on medieval gender roles. Margaret and Mary function as opposite sides of the Madonna/Whore, Saint/Sinner stereotypes that dominate female representation in the medieval period and through to the modern age, and this conference would also encourage all submissions that encompass female representation more widely, taking these two opposites as a basis.
Papers can address, but are not limited to, the topics of:
Historical Context
Reading and writing female experience
Female book owners
Queens as book owners and patrons
Women and the Church
Queens and Queenship
Female literacy in the Middle Ages
Religious iconography/relics
Female voice (complaint, lyric, prayer)
This conference is open to all, particularly current graduate and early career researchers.
We invite abstracts of up to 300 words for 20 minute papers, and a short CV. These should be sent to ssconf2016@gmail.com by the 31st of August 2016. There will be limited financial help available for graduate students and unwaged postdoctoral researchers to assist with travel.
