"The conference 'Preparing for Death in Medieval and Early Modern Europe' will investigate and explore the various ways and strategies medieval and early modern people used in attempting to prepare themselves and others - body, soul, property and memory - for the inevitable and omnipresent death. Although the timeframe is historical in order to achieve certain consistency, the conference aims at interdisciplinarity. Papers dealing with religious, legal, visual, cultural, political, and philosophical perspectives on preparing for death are welcome.Those interested in giving a twenty-minute presentation at the conference are requested to submit a paper proposal (about 200 words) by 30 October 2012 to MIA KORPIOLA: mia.korpiola[at]helsinki.fi), Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, University of Helsinki"
