Movement and Mobility in the Medieval Mediterranean (6th – 15th Centuries)

Event Date: 
08 Jul 2019 to 11 Jul 2019

Barcelona, Institut D’estudis Catalans (Iec), 8 ‐ 11 July 2019


The medieval Mediterranean was not a static maritime space. In recent years, studies have focused on Mediterranean dynamics, connections, encounters and entanglements. What approaches do researches from History, Literature, Archaeology, Philology and other disciplines adopt to better understand the complexity of the medieval Mediterranean? How and to what extent did multiple agents, phenomena and factors interact to shape and intertwine the multidimensional spheres of the Mediterranean? We welcome papers from all disciplines that study movement and mobility from different perspectives in and across the medieval Mediterranean and its extensions, both physical and imagined. Participants are encouraged to submit proposals for panels of 3 papers. The panel proposer should collate the three abstracts (including titles, presenters’ names, affiliations, short CVs or most important publications and keywords) and submit them together, indicating clearly the rationale behind the planned panel. We also invite 300‐400 word abstracts for 20‐minute individual papers relating to the conference theme. Nevertheless, panel proposals will be given priority over individual papers. Poster proposals (title and short description up to 200 words, including name, affiliation, short CV or most important publications and keywords as well) are also welcome. Abstracts for panels, individual papers and posters should be emailed to by 31th December 2018.

Submission date for papers:
