CFP: Jerusalem: The Holy City, sessions at 55th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Western Michigan University, May 7–10, 2020
The Stanford University Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS) is pleased to announce that we will sponsor three sessions at the 55th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan (May 7-10, 2020). Among these are two linked panel sessions entitled “Jerusalem: The Holy City.” The first considers medieval imaginings of a distant Jerusalem across textual, visual, and material culture, while the second considers Jerusalem as an interreligious experience among Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
We invite proposals for each of these sessions, and will consider all those received by September 15th.
