Apologies for cross-posting.
53rd International Medieval Congress, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo MI (May 10–13, 2018)
CALL FOR PAPERS: Mediterranean Materiality and Consumption
Session sponsored by the CU Mediterranean Studies Group/Mediterranean Seminar
This session addresses the study of materiality and consumption in the Medieval Mediterranean. What was the specific material culture of the medieval Mediterranean? What was consumed and by whom? Papers may focus on any related themes, for example, the relationship between material and immaterial, the fabrication of objects and texts and the perception of these works, the circulation of objects, and the networks that made that circulation possible. Papers that adopt a comparative perspective, including one which examines Christian, Muslim, and Jewish cultures and their interaction, or those that propose novel approaches and methodologies are particularly welcome.
Contact Nuria Silleras-Fernandez at for further information or to submit a proposal (300-word abstract, one-page CV, and media equipment request by 15 September 2017).
