Description

Recent work on the medieval Mediterranean has emphasized how the fragmented geography of the region promoted connectivity and exchange, creating zones of mutual intelligibility. In this work, “portable objects” have emerged as key intermediaries between Byzantine, western European, and Islamic visual traditions, with studies focusing on the role of mobility in generating “shared culture,” as well as new uses, meanings, and interpretations. This panel will build on the pioneering work of art historians such as Eva Hoffman, focusing specifically on the movement of dress and ornament – as physical objects, the subject of representation, and cultural practice – between Byzantium and neighboring regions.
