Euro-Mediterranean Entanglements in Medieval History
Online Seminars Organised by the German Historical Institutes of Paris and Rome
Deadline: 2021, 15 June
The German Historical Institutes of Paris and Rome are launching an online seminar series on "Euro-Mediterranean Entanglements in Medieval History" in the academic year 2021/2022. The events will take place every two months. They are aimed at both young scholars and established scholars from all medieval disciplines. The intention is to create an international and interdisciplinary forum where diverse topics and methodological approaches can be presented and discussed.
We cordially invite interested researchers to present and discuss their ongoing or recently completed work before an international audience. Please send an abstract (1-2 pages) and short curriculum vitae (with list of publications, if possible) by June 15, 2021 to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The geographical area is deliberately not clearly defined and includes Europe, as well as the Mediterranean region in its broadest sense. Also comprised are interconnections between the Euro-Mediterranean area and other world regions. The following topics are in focus:
- Cross-regional, transcultural, and interreligious entanglements (processes/results).
- Overlapping Spaces: Between geographic borders and cultural contacts
- Social networks and interpersonal relations
- Mobility and migration
- Transfer, diffusion and adaptation (of ideas, knowledge and material objects)
