Title: The Theatre As Object and Subject in Jean Fouquet's Martyrdom of St. Apollonia: An Interdisciplinary Approach
Organiser: Gordon Kipling English Department, University of California, Los Angeles
Moderator: Peter Meredith School of English, University of Leeds
Purpose: This session will explore, with slide illustration, Jean Fouquet's use of theatre as a setting for his depiction of the martyrdom of a saint. The apparent realism of the theatre in Fouquet's image encourages us to regard it as an object, a visual record of performance, but it is an imaginative reconstruction of two literary texts. How does he use theatre as subject and what theatrical objects are dedicated by their functions as a homiletic venue?

Session: 917
Title: History of Medieval Daily Life: The Variety of Approaches - A Round Table Discussion
Organiser: Gerhard Jaritz Institut für Realienkunde, Krems/ Central European University, Budapest
Moderator: Gerhard Jaritz
Purpose: The history of medieval everyday life is a field of research dependent on interdisciplinary approaches. Written and pictorial sources as well as archaeological evidence play important roles for any analysis. The different contexts of information and their interpretation determine our (re)construction of daily life decisively. The aim of the round table is to discuss various methods and approaches. It should show that 'History of Daily Life' has to be seen as a very necessary field of Medieval Studies that also offers relevant methods and results for many other historical disciplines.

Session: 923
Title: Unity and Diversification in the North Sea-Baltic Region: Towards a Reappraisal of Hanse? - A Round Table Discussion
Organiser: Dick E.H. de Boer Department of Medieval History, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen
Moderator: Dick E.H. de Boer
Purpose: Relations between the regions of North Sea and Baltic since the 12th century are largely dominated - in the historians view - by the existence and role of Hanse. Recent historiography and plans for new research seem to lay a new emphasis on the diverging elements within the system, on the role of `Hansoids' next to `Hanseates', and on cultural diversity next to the many binding and uniting elements. Not to forget the many activities out of the Hanseatic control or inspiration. The round table aims to start a discussion on this theme, to prepare a full strand of sessions in 1998.
