medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Please consider this message a preliminary "call for papers" to the 
Fifth Fifteenth-Century Conference (sponsored by the Richard III 
Society and the Program in Medieval Studies and the English Department 
of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).

This tri-annual conference will be held 6 May 2007, just before the 
annual International Medieval Congress at Western Michigan University 
(10-13 May).

The Fifteenth-Century Conference will once again be held at scenic 
Allerton Park in Montecello, Illinois. It will feature Prof. Barrie 
Dobson, Cambridge University (retired), and Prof. Pamela King, 
University of Bristol, as plenary and keynote speakers.

The formal call for papers as well as information on fees, 
accommodations, etc., will appear on our website in mid-August (URL 
forthcoming). Papers should be approximately 45 minutes long and can 
deal with any aspect of fifteenth-century England. (Our definition of 
"fifteenth-century England" is rather broad, covering England and its 
realm--both insular and continental--from c. 1350 to c. 1550.)  Paper 
proposals should be submitted by 15 October 2006 for consideration by 
the conference organizers.

Proposals can be sent to:
