Panel at the 44th International Congress on Medieval Studies
7-10 May 2009, Kalamazoo, Mich.

The evolution of values and the identities they shaped has received a somewhat
short shrift in the burgeoning cultural history of the Middle Ages. Despite the
increasing sophistication of modern heuristic tools, values -- in their
philosophical, economic, political, and other meanings -- have been assigned to
the domain of normative ethics, to be explored mostly from a theological and
discursive point of view by experts on sin, vice, and virtue. Quite frequently,
pride, and even more so arrogance and insolence, are casually mentioned as
unhistorical phenomena with fixed meaning. As Lester Little's seminal article
revealed almost a quarter of a century ago, however, a detailed inquiry into the
evolution of pride has much to tell us about crucial shifts in the formation of
medieval culture. Our panel proposes to revisit the fountainhead of vice and its
offshoots and explore their etiology and genealogy, their meaning and contents
in specific contexts, and the dimensions and function of diverse
conceptualizations of pride, arrogance, and insolence as markers of individual,
group, and social identities. We expect the panelists to shed light on a central
issue: is there added value in the juxtaposition of established discursive
constructs and social developments? Is there epistemological benefit in
exploring the meaning and function of the social and collective disapproval
expressed through the notions of pride, arrogance, and insolence? We invite
papers that explore the intersection of the ethos transpiring in the
conceptualizations of pride and its related phenomena, on the one hand, and
identity-making, on the other, from all possible points of view and within the
frameworks of any discipline.

Abstracts -- along with the Participant Information Form
http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/submissions.html -- should be submitted
by 15 September 2008 to Kiril Petkov (kiril.petkov_at_uwrf.edu) and Wolfram R.
Keller (kellerw_at_staff.uni-marburg.de).
