"Identities - Forms, Functions & (Con) Fusions"

A Collaborative Project of English Medieval Studies at the Universities of Bochum, Bonn and Düsseldorf (14.05. – 15.05.2015)

This workshop aims to bring together students and lecturers from Medieval English Studies in Bochum, Bonn, and Düsseldorf. We will explore various aspects of the topic of identities, e.g. gender norms and expectations; authors' and narrators' identities; physical and psychological formation of identity; material identities/text and texture; and descriptive and prescriptive rules.

The representation and construction of identity in literary, historiographical and religious writings as well as identity formation in drama, fine arts or music are topics to be discussed. We are also planning a practical, hands-on workshop on medical remedies, which will highlight several levels of the relationship between textual and material identity.
