AVISTA, the Association Villard de Honnecourt for the Interdisciplinary Study of Technology, Science, and Art in the Middle Ages, is pleased to announce FOUR sessions at the International Congress for Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo next year, which will be held from 9-12 May 2013:
- New Studies of the North Transept of Reims I: Archeology & Architecture
- New Studies of the North Transept of Reims II: Sculpture
- Metal Production & Design
- Metals in Architecture
In addition, we are in negotiations to have a live iron smelting demonstration at the ICMS, likely on Saturday. Once details are finalized, we will be accepting volunteers to assist the smith as smelting apprentices.
