Call for Papers for the session: “One’s Place in the World: Mapping and Space in Medieval Thought”

The notion of space in the Middle Ages is multifaceted. Space could relate to one’s physical surroundings, such as an architectural structure. It could also refer to one’s place in the world depending on social standing or political power. Space could also be experienced within one’s own mind through imagined journeys or religious rituals. The mapping of space can also be considered in various ways. It was represented concretely in maps and manuscripts, in a symbolic way demonstrated in rituals, or internally through memory. This session will focus on the various ways in which the medieval mind experienced and represented space. Scholars from any discipline are encouraged to apply.
