Description

The goal of this panel is to continue the lively, ongoing scholarly conversation about the movement and/or circulation of texts, objects, and ideas throughout the Middle Ages. Contemporary society is not the first to grapple with how to best dispose of and/or benefit from objects, opinions and knowledge that come from distant places or times. The medieval circulation of texts, objects, and ideas has received renewed scholarly attention in recent years, including at a conference we organized at Harvard University in February 2018.
