Commemorating Thomas Becket: call for CSM session papers

18 Nov 2019 2:16 PM | Marc Cels (Administrator)

Paul Brown aptly described Thomas Becket as a tripartite figure: historical, legendary, and literary. 2020 marks the triple jubilee of Thomas Becket: 900-year anniversary of his birth, 850-years since his murder, and 800-years since his translation. We invite proposals for papers on all things Becket related for the panel “Commemorating Thomas Becket.” I will be submitting a proposal for a session at the beginning of January for the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Society of Medievalists conference held at the 2020 Congress in London, Ontario, at the University of Western Ontario, June 3-5. Proposals which address the political, religious, literary, or cultural aspects of his life, death, or legacy are invited for submission. Participants may be from any field or subfield of Medieval or Renaissance studies. Interdisciplinary papers or
collaborative papers are encouraged and welcome. An abstract of 200-300 words with a title and contact information, along with a one-page C.V., should be sent to Tristan B. Taylor, Department of English, University of Saskatchewan, via email at by January 10th,
