medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture
Dear friends and colleagues,

I write to upcoming or recent Ph.Ds working on any and all aspects of religious or devotional history (broadly conceived).  And to ask all of you to forward this to anyone who is doing cutting edge work on aspects of medieval religious history. I am involved in running this year's Dartmouth History Institute, which seeks to bring in the best new work/ finishing or recent Ph.D.s, in Medieval Religious History, to Hanover NH for the New Directions Institute this Spring (May 29-June 2).  Travel etc., covered. The call is below. Please email me at [log in to unmask] with any and all queries.  We want all great, new, exciting, work!

CFP: New Directions in Medieval Religious history


We invite applications for participation in the second annual Dartmouth Summer History Institute (Tuesday May 29-Saturday June 2). The theme for 2018 is New Directions in Medieval Religious History.  The aim of the Summer Institute is to bring together the most promising young scholars working on medieval religious history from across our field, to read and workshop pieces of their historical writing as they embark on the transition from dissertation to book, in order to take stock of emerging considerations and approaches.  We are interested in all aspects of religious history, including its links to political, social, cultural, and intellectual history.  Applicants should be in the process of completing their Ph.D. dissertations or in the early stages of revising the Ph.D. as a book manuscript.  (Students finishing Ph.D.s in Spring or Summer of 2018 are encouraged to apply.)  Participants will each furnish a draft article or working dissertation/book chapter central to or exemplary of their larger historical intervention to be workshopped.   In addition to workshopping individual pieces of writing, the Institute will include a variety of fora (receptions, dinners, and lectures) to discuss theoretical and methodological issues in the company of invited senior scholars. For information about the inaugural Institute (on the theme of modern European Intellectual History) held in 2017, please visit

Participation in the Institute includes travel, room, and board. To apply send a CV and letter of application with 1-2 paragraphs describing the project and the piece you would intend to workshop by March 1, 2018 to Professors Cecilia Gaposchkin and Walter Simons, Dept. of History. All inquiries, correspondence, and applications can be sent to [log in to unmask].
