    This conference will address eschatological awareness in ancient,
    medieval, and modern cultures and will focus on how this awareness of the
    "End" influenced literature and social, religious, political, and
    cultural practices.  The day will open with a panel discussion on
    methodological approaches to the topic. This will be followed by the
    presentation of graduate student papers, an afternoon keynote address,
    and a performance of the Wakefield Last Judgment play.
    Possible topics include:  eschatology; resurrection and immortality;
    heaven, hell, and purgatory; penance and pilgrimage; institutionalized
    asceticism and "death to the world"; death, relics, and remembrance; the
    cult of saints; burial and funerary practices; ghosts and otherworld
    journeys; and apocalypticism and millenarianism.
    Graduate students and recent recipients of the Ph.D. in Art History and
    Architecture, History, Music, Philosophy, Religion, and English and
    language departments are invited to submit papers.
    GRADUATE STUDENTS: please submit a 250-word abstract and a brief
    biography by June 10, 1996.
