Description

Medieval history is a global discipline: this session brings together scholars working on projects related to contact between the traditional medieval lands of western Europe and various medieval cultures across Africa and Asia. People, things, and ideas moved across the cultures and civilizations of the medieval world. Scholars are encouraged to think critically about how disparate cultures in the medieval period interacted and understood one another. Rather than focusing on one aspect of contact, this session grapples with this global revolution by inviting scholars to present research on intercultural exchange in the medieval period from perspectives such as intellectual history, material culture, history of religions and beyond.
