Description

Scholars from multiple disciplines are increasingly examining and presenting medieval artifacts in ways that go beyond traditional catalog descriptions, focusing instead on how surviving items, individually or collectively, illuminate their cultural and social contexts. Roundtable participants will describe the approaches they took in selecting, analyzing, and presenting artifacts, including what they learned along the way and how their experiences might inform other researchers' work in material culture. Among the participants are the authors of Fifty Early Medieval Things (2019), The Middle Ages in 50 Objects (2018), Clothing the Past (2018), and Medieval Art in Motion (2019).
