Description

In inviting a viewer to touch, kiss, move, or conceal it, the medieval object was an active agent in determining how a viewer responded to and engaged with it, thereby generating meaning. This round table will reflect on the application of critical theory such as reception theory, object oriented ontology, and thing theory to the study of medieval art, and explore the shifting ways that medieval objects are considered as active (participatory) agents.
