and symposium on
“Magic, Science, and Medicine in the Pre-Modern Mediterranean"
November 11 and 12, 2016
The Mediterranean Seminar, the Malta Study Center and the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library, in conjunction with the Mediterranean Studies Research Collaborative, Center for Medieval Studies, Center for Early Modern History, and Consortium for the Study of the Premodern World at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities are seeking proposals for papers to be workshopped and round-table participants for the 2016 Mediterranean Seminar Fall Workshop to be held at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library on the campus of Saint John’s University, on November 11-12, 2016.
We invite abstracts for papers on the topic “Magic, Medicine, and Technology in the Mediterranean” for the workshop to be held on Friday, November 11. We seek papers in any relevant discipline, especially comparative or interdisciplinary work that uses the Mediterranean as a frame of analysis and addresses the topics of magic, science, or medicine or their representation. All North American-based scholars (or foreign scholars who will be in the US at this time) working on relevant material are encouraged to apply.
The workshop will be followed by a presentation by featured scholar, Monica Green (Arizona State University).
The three rubrics for the workshop are
- Disease, hospitals, and care in the Mediterranean
- Scientific exchange in the Mediterranean
- Magic and dissimulation in Mediterranean society
Round table participants will submit a short position paper (3-5 pp.) in advance of the meeting.
Deadline for applications is June 15.
