The Center for Medieval Studies at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities seeks proposals for our sponsored session ‘Negotiating Religion, Gender, and Travel in the Medieval Mediterranean’.
Mediterranean Studies is helping the field think more comparatively and bring into dialogue scholars working in a variety of fields, from Spanish, French, Arabic and Italian. People in the medieval Mediterranean were connected by networks of trade, family and knowledge. This panel aims to explore how authors imagined the people who lived these networks and their effects, including enslaved peoples, scholars and merchants.
