La Society for the Medieval Mediterranean organise un colloque à Gand, du 10 au 12 juillet 2017.
Avec pour titre Communities, imaginations and emotions in the Medieval Mediterranean, ce colloque comprend des aspects relatifs aux déplacements et à la connaissance de l’espace méditerranéen, comme le montre l’argumentaire ci-dessous, ainsi que la liste des thèmes abordés :
The theme of the conference is “Communities, Imaginations and Emotions in the Medieval Mediterranean”. We welcome papers from all disciplines that study emotions, imaginations and communities in, of and across the Medieval Mediterranean. This theme invites a variety of lines of inquiry, a number of which are suggested below. How were emotions produced, expressed and communicated? To what end were imaginations used and abused? In what ways were communities perceived and understood? What communalities and particularities are there? Which challenges do the literary, historical, archaeological and other sources pose in this respect?
The keynotes will be delivered by Professor Marina Rustow (Princeton) and Professor Nikolas Jaspert (Heidelberg).
