Description

The Society for the Study of Homosexuality in the Middle Ages (SSHMA) invites all papers that explore any queer topic within works that discuss (1) either the Medieval Mediterranean world or (2) were written by Mediterranean authors. While European Mediterranean medieval and early modern studies has benefited from numerous edited essays like Queer Iberia (eds. Josiah Blackmore and Gregory Hutcheson) and more recently The Poetics of Masculinity in Early Modern Italy and Spain (eds. Geryy Milligan and Jane Tylus), SSHMA encourages abstracts from all disciplines that discuss all of Western and Eastern Mediterranean Europe, Northern Africa and the Ottoman Empire. Some of the disciplines that we hope to involve in this discussion include but are not limited to vernacular and Medieval Latin literatures, medieval political theory, philosophy, theology, and art history.
