Recent scholarship has begun to acknowledge that the focus of Medieval and Early Modern Studies has long been on the elite, male, western European experience. New movements in academia are addressing this imbalance, acknowledging that women, ethnic minorities, and other marginalised groups contributed richly to the fabric of medieval and early modern life. Ceræ aims to join this shift in focus to the experiences of minority groups, marginalised peoples, and life in non-western territories with a conference session at IMC Leeds 2020.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Experiences of minority or marginalised groups
- Writings by minority or marginalised groups
- Literary depictions of minority or marginalised groups
- The effacement of minority or marginalised groups
- Experiences on the transition of a border or landscape
- The law of minority and marginalised groups
- Minority and marginalised cultures, beliefs, and celebrations
- Experiences of disability and physical and mental illness
Ceræ invites submissions encompassing all aspects of the late classical, medieval, and early modern world. There are no geographical restrictions. As an interdisciplinary journal, Ceræ encourages submissions across the fields of archaeology, art history, historical ecology, literature, linguistics, intellectual history, musicology, politics, social studies, and beyond.
Abstracts of 250 words should be sent to email@example.com by 1st September 2019.
Attendees are responsible for all fees and costs associated with attending the IMC, and for registering for the congress.
