Description

The papers in this session explore select badges as miniaturizing objects, bringing them into dialogue with those objects with which they share features such as iconographic referentiality and reflecting on the selective design processes, mimetic and symbolic referentialities, and semiotic implications of creating badges that miniaturize features of religious art works such as reliquaries, elite objects such as swords, and ordinary implements such as cooking pans. The session builds on the momentum at the Congress to bring medieval badges into the mainstream of medieval studies research by advancing interdisciplinary approaches and exchange.
