Deadline: 15th Sep 2012
Dimitri Drettas (CRCAO, Paris) is organizing a session on Exorcism and Other Magical Practices in Medieval China for the 48th International Congress on Medieval Studies, to be held on May 9-12, 2013 in Kalamazoo (MI), USA. The session’s sponsor is the Societas Magica (www.societasmagica.org). With over three thousand participants every year, the Kalamazoo Congress is the most important annual event for medievalists worldwide
(see external Link for more information). For researchers in Chinese studies, this represents a unique opportunity to establish a fruitful comparative dialogue with scholars working on similar topics in Europe and other ‘Western’ cultural areas. All colleagues interested in giving a paper are invited to submit their proposal (ca. 250 words) and the completed ‘Participant Information Form’ by email to Dr. Drettas (firstname.lastname@example.org), by September 15, 2012.
