'Fables and Preaching': international conference organized by the Department of Latin Philology in the Middle Ages and Modern Period at FAU. In the premodern period, fables were not only texts used for entertainment and in classrooms. Their edifying, moralizing character predisposed them for use as exempla in preaching. In the late Middle Ages specific collections were even created for this purpose. This Call for Papers is directed at young scholars up to the age of 35, who would like to present the results of their research on Latin and vernacular fables and their use up to c.1650. Submit a curriculum vitae and a short proposal by 1 March 2019. Selected speakers will receive a fixed sum of 160 euros for the costs of travel and accommodation (Erlangen/Germany, 15-16 May 2019)
