Symposium: The Medieval Image in the Twenty-First Century

The Medieval Image in the Twenty-First Century, part of the Magdalene College Cambridge Triennial Festival, Saturday 21st January 2012

A one-day symposium on The Medieval Image in the Twenty-First Century will take place as part of the Magdalene College Festival of the Image 2011-2012 at Cambridge University, on Saturday 21st January 2012 in Cripps Court, Magdalene College, Cambridge.

In this all-day symposium, we consider how the medieval image is significant in the twenty-first century. There will be lectures and panel sessions on how modern theories and approaches have altered our perception of medieval images, how twenty-first century writers, film-makers and poets have used such images, and how we now see the role of the twenty-first century in shaping the conservation of these images. There will also be the world premiere of a new setting of a well-known medieval lyric.

Participants include: Dr Nora Berend (University of Cambridge), Dr Alixe Bovey (University of Kent), Dr Bill Burgwinkle (Cambridge University), Professor Ardis Butterfield (University College, London), Dr Lesley A Coote (University of Hull), Dr Kathleen Davis (University of Rhode Island), Professor Carolyn Dinshaw (University of New York), Dr Charles Moseley (University of Cambridge), Dr Stella Panayotova (Fitzwilliam Museum), Dr Elisabeth Taburet-Delahaye (Musée de Cluny, Paris), Dr Jaqueline Tasioulas (University of Cambridge). Details, with a provisional programme, are attached. If you would like to register, please e-mail the Festival Director, Dr Jane Hughes, on litfest@magd.cam.ac.uk.
