CFP IMC Kalamazoo May 2020: Perceptions of Environmental Change in
the Medieval World
by Abigail Agresta
Call for Papers: International Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo (May 7-10,
Organizer: Abigail Agresta

Assistant Professor of History

George Washington University

Sponsor: Environmental History Network for the Middle Ages (ENFORMA)

Session Title: Perceptions of Environmental Change in the Medieval World

Changing environments and changing climates have become defining features of
our current historical moment. Meanwhile, recent scientific and historical
scholarship has traced the outlines of climatic and environmental changes in
the pre-modern world. Medievalists now have the opportunity to deepen the
history of such change and responses to it, using all kinds of evidence, from
new scientific data on pre-modern environments to medieval discourses on the
natural world.

This session seeks papers presenting examples of how medieval people
experienced, interpreted, and responded to changes (or perceived changes) in
the non-human world. Submissions are invited from any region and period.
Locally focused studies are particularly welcome, and cross- and inter-
disciplinary approaches are encouraged.

Please submit abstract (max. 250 words) and completed Participant Information
