Medieval Materiality:

A Conference on the Life and Afterlife of Things

 

23-25 October 2014

University of Colorado at Boulder

Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS)

 

Recent work in medieval history has focused on materiality, specifically the object-ness of things – relics, cloth, books, and other materials – that survived from the medieval past.  At the same time, scholars of medieval literature have approached materiality by reinvigorating manuscript studies and by incorporating theories of digital media and networks. This interdisciplinary conference invites scholars in all fields to come together and ask two main questions: What does medieval materiality consist of? And what are the ramifications of such a focus for medieval studies more broadly.

Plenary Speakers:

Jessica Brantley – Associate Professor of English, Yale University

Caroline Walker Bynum – Professor Emerita, History, Columbia University / Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ

Aden Kumler – Associate Professor of Art History, University of Chicago

Daniel Lord Smail – Professor of History, Harvard University
