CALL FOR PAPERS:
52nd International Medieval Congress, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo MI (May 11–14, 2017)
Networks of Books and Readers in the Medieval Mediterranean I: Books
Networks of Books and Readers in the Medieval Mediterranean II: Readers
Sessions sponsored by the CU Mediterranean Studies Group/Mediterranean Seminar
These sessions address the study of networks of books and readers in the Medieval Mediterranean. How did texts and ideas circulate in a Mediterranean context? What types of motifs, topics, and ideas travelled? What books were translated and why? Were there Mediterranean networks of readers who circulated particular texts? These two panels, one focusing on books and the other on readers, seek papers of a comparative, interdisciplinary and/or methodologically innovative nature that focus on how members of various faith and ethnic communities circulated texts and ideas in the broader Mediterranean.
