Call for Papers – New Research on Hirsau in the Middle Ages

An international workshop will take place at the monastery of Hirsau on 9 and 10 November 2017.  This interdisciplinary workshop will provide a platform for scholars at all career stages to present and discuss their research on this important center of monastic reform in Germany’s Black Forest. We welcome abstracts for projects in the areas of history, theology, art history or music history. Young scholars are particularly encouraged to apply.

Please send a brief (max. 1 page) abstract describing your proposed project to Prof. Alison Beach at by 30 April. Those invited to present a project will receive free accommodation in Hirsau. We regret that we cannot cover travel expenses (or only to a limited extent).

Organizers: Alison Beach (Ohio State University), Sigrid Hirbodian (Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen); Stefan Molitor (Staatsarchiv Ludwigsburg), in partnership with the Verein Freunde Kloster Hirsau eV.
