Migration(s): Body, Word, Spirit: Medieval and Early Modern Field Committee (University of Maryland: 10-11 November 2017 )

Deadline: 1 May 2017

Keynote Speaker: Prof Nicholas Terpstra (University of Toronto)

Organisers: Andrea M. Frisch; Sabrina Alcorn Baron; Stefano Villani

Migration(s) of various sorts—of people, information, political, religious, and cultural movements—have long transformed the periods, places, and paradigms in which they occur. Recent scholarship has underlined the fundamental importance of migrations in the medieval and early modern periods. Intrinsically interesting in their original context, these historic migrations also provide much-needed perspective on the migrations our world is currently experiencing.

We invite 250-300 word proposals for individual 20-minute papers from established scholars and advanced graduate students based on, but not limited to, the themes outlined below. Digital projects welcome.

* Refugees
* Exiles

* Expatriate/Merchant Communities
