Event description

Description

The medieval world was a dynamic place. Stories, texts, and ideas flowed from one community to another, changing and growing in the process; an individual’s journey could bring and spread intellectual, artistic, or administrative innovations; larger groups moved, seeking fresh beginnings or an escape from current tribulations. And, just as today, new arrivals were sometimes seen as welcome opportunities for growth, and sometimes as unsettling threats.

This conference will explore instances of such migrations and their reception from across the medieval period. A large number of papers from a range of disciplines across two days will discuss historical, fictional, and cultural movements including instances of integration and rejection. Keynotes will be delivered by Profs. Winfried Rudolf (Göttingen) and Richard North (University College London).
