Description

Mark D. Johnston, in multi-disciplinary studies of Ibero-medieval authors as diverse as Ramon Llull and Hernando de Talavera, combines scholarship of medieval philosophy, rhetoric, conduct literature, evangelical piety, anti-Judaism, and Iberian social and political history with literary analysis to richly contextualize the lives and works of authors too often treated as one-dimensional representatives of narrower phenomena or traditions. On the occasion of Professor Johnston’s retirement from teaching, the North American Catalan Society seeks papers likewise employing multi-disciplinary approaches to enhance our understanding of the lives and works of Ibero-Medieval authors, whether by revealing new breadth in a well-known writer’s connections to contemporary intellectual, social, or historical contexts, or by establishing the links between a less well-known author and these contexts.
