CFP: Animal Husbandry: Bestiality in Medieval Culture

Book: Animal Husbandry: Bestiality in Medieval Culture
Editor: Jacqueline Stuhmiller
Submission deadline for abstracts: July 31, 2016
Description: »We are looking for essays that explore the ways that medieval people came into sexual contact with non-human creatures, whether in practice or representation, temporarily or permanently, deliberately or accidentally. Where did the medievals locate the boundaries between human and non-human, and what were the penalties (and the rewards) of crossing those boundaries? We are especially interested in interdisciplinary and transcultural studies, as well as those that incorporate the disciplines of law, history, sociology, archaeology, folklore, theology, and art history.«
