15-16 May 2019
The Department of Latin Philology in the Middle Ages and Modern Period at FAU is organizing an international conference in May 2019 on the theme of Fables and Preaching. In the premodern period, fables were not only texts used for entertainment and in classrooms. Their edifying, moralizing character predisposed them for use as exempla in preaching. In the late Middle Ages specific collections were even created for this purpose. This Call for Papers is directed at young scholars up to the age of 35, who would like to present the results of their research on Latin and vernacular fables and their use up to c. 1650. Interested individuals should submit a curriculum vitae and a short proposal by 1 March 2019. Selected speakers will receive a fixed sum of 160 euros for the costs of travel and accommodation. Please send your application including full CV by post to: Prof. Dr. Michele C. Ferrari Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Mittellatein und Neulatein Kochstr. 4/3 91054 Erlangen or by e-mail to Dr. Stefan Weber.
