In 2020, the International Medieval Congress in Leeds will take place with the special thematic strand „borders“ (cf. https://www.imc.leeds.ac.uk/imc2020/). The German Society Brevitas – Gesellschaft zur Erforschung vormoderner Kleinepik wants to sponsor two or three sessions regarding borders in pre-modern short epics (cf. the attached call of abstracts).
Besides contributions concerning German literature, we also want to encourage talks on pre-modern European short epics (e.g. English, French, Italian etc.). If you are interested in taking part, please do not hesitate to send a short abstract to Silvan.Wagner@uni-bayreuth.de, preferably before 30.08.2019.
