>Special Session: The Panoptic and The Middle Ages Revisited
>
>The 2006 panel focused on the possible application of panopticism in 
>the understanding and interpretation of medieval culture. Topics 
>ranged from the soaring castle over landscapes to the winged 
>Daedelus, from Chaucer to Langland, and bioveillance and 
>dataveillance and the Fourth Lateran Council. For the 2007 session 
>we want to focus on Foucault and his philosophy in relation to 
>medieval culture. How much or how little--how viable--can the 
>panoptic concept be applied to the understanding and interpretation 
>of medieval culture? Can certain aspects provide a valid vision of 
>medieval culture? These are some of the questions we can attempt to 
>address in this panel. Submissions are welcome from all disciplines 
>of the Humanities. Theoretical or pedagogical approach to this topic 
>is also welcome. Please submit your proposal of about 250 words to
