A. 簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
印第安納大學中世紀研究所歡迎來自各種學門的學者從全球的觀點探索中世紀的文化記憶和過去的運用。過去在中世紀是如何被使用(和濫用)呢?在個人、社會、宗教和政治的組成過程中,部署過去究竟欲達成什麼目的?中世紀是如何在後中古時代成為認同和實踐的基礎歷史?最近的研究證明了過去在創造中世紀認同方面的重要性。此外,中世紀的過去已成為當前文化記憶的試金石,部署在我們當前時刻所構建的過去當中。

How is the past used (and abused) in the middle ages? To what purposes is it deployed in personal, social, religious, and political formation? And how has the medieval served as a foundational past for identities and practices in post-medieval periods? Recent scholarship demonstrates the importance of the past in the creation of medieval identity. In the words of Walter Pohl and Ian Wood, the past could be used “to create legitimacy, explain inclusion and exclusion, establish precedent, provide orientation, exemplify moral exhortation, inspire a sense of what was possible and what was not, to negotiate status, to argue about the right norms or to imagine the future.” Moreover, the medieval past has become a touchstone of current cultural memory, deployed in constructing the past of our own present moment.
The Medieval Studies Institute of Indiana University welcomes scholars from a range of disciplines and objects: history, literature, music; material artifacts and spaces; religion, politics, and law. We are especially interested in papers that explore global perspectives on cultural memory and the use of the past.
