ACMRS invites session and paper proposals for its
annual interdisciplinary conference to be held 14 ? 16
February 2008 at the Fiesta Inn Resort in Tempe,
Arizona. We welcome papers that explore any topic
related to the study and teaching of the Middle Ages
and Renaissance, and especially those that focus on
this year?s theme of law and sovereignty, both in its
literal and metaphorical manifestations.

Selected papers related to the conference theme will
be considered for publication in the conference volume
of the Arizona Studies in the Middle Ages and the
Renaissance series, published by Brepols Publishers

Renaissance Studies at Ohio State University. Among
his many publications are A Crisis of Truth:

Pennsylvania Press, 1998), Poets and Princepleasers:
Literature and the English Court in the Late Middle
Ages (University of Toronto Press, 1980), Interstices:
