Description

For the first time this series of sessions brings into comprehensive scholarly focus the exceptionally high standard and wide range of artistic and architectural creativity in medieval southern Italy. The overarching aim is to shed light on the importance of the region with an eye to recent developments in medieval art history and medieval studies at large. The specific historical situation of Italy’s southern regions and islands—which were exposed to a long sequence of military invasions, subjected to foreign rulers and centrally positioned within the Mediterranean—resulted in a fascinating, often interconnected, artistic and architectural landscape. Papers raising larger theoretical and historiographic aspects are particularly welcome. This series of sessions at Kalamazoo provides a platform for the different viewpoints and varied aims of the growing number of scholars working on southern Italian medieval art and architecture.
