Event Details

The Early Medieval Interdisciplinary Conference Series is pleased to present Sensory Perception in the Medieval World, taking place on 12th and 13th April in UCL's Institute of Archaeology.

Attention is being increasingly brought to the ways in which we understand and interpret written, printed, and physical materials from the early medieval period.  This is enhanced by the growing availability of digital resources which enhance the potential for visual perception while reducing the opportunity to use other senses for interpretation. 

At the same time, scholarship is becoming more conscious of ways in which artefacts and documents were perceived and used in the period: of how the design of objects, including books and manuscripts, controlled their reception.

Papers include discussions of the role of digital editions of texts, the impact of art, perceptions of deafness, the sensory experience of manuscripts, and the presentation and exploitation of the senses in Old English, Old Norse, and Medieval Literature.

Places are £10 (£5 students and concessions), with a discount for advance bookings.  Refreshments, including wine, and a sandwich lunch on both days are included.  For an additional fee, there will be an optional tour of the British Museum's 'Vikings: Life and Legend' exhibition on the afternoon of Sunday 13th.  Email Simon Thomson for more details.
