Description

An object’s physicality is one of its defining characteristics—something that helps to separate material culture from other cultural products. Of late, scholarship has increasingly focused on the materiality of medieval objects as a way of understanding their ritual, symbolic, and economic significances. This session builds on this burgeoning area of study to specifically consider how materiality intersects with other aspects of medieval culture and/or theoretical frameworks. Potential submissions might comprise investigations of the relationship between an object’s materiality and its facture, including considerations of the artists or craftsmen involved in its production; the intertwined relationship between materiality and form; or how the lens of materiality works with or against historicizing approaches to material culture.
