Description

Critical and theoretical investigations of materiality are increasingly prevalent in historical inquiry, spurred by recent interest in the relationships between contemporary objects and emotions in the twenty-first century. The historical intersections between material culture and emotions in medieval contexts, however, remain under explored. This panel will address the need to develop an appropriate cross-disciplinary theoretical framework for the study of materiality and emotion in the Middle Ages. The papers in “Materiality and Emotion II: Sticks and Stone” treat the emotions in the context of art, architecture, nature, weaponry and sculpture.
