The University of Southampton is proud to host the 2011 biannual conference of the Society for the medieval Mediterranean. This three-day conference will bring together scholars to explore the interaction of the various peoples, societies, faiths and cultures of the medieval Mediterranean, a region which had been commonly represented as divided by significant religious and cultural differences. The objective of the conference is to highlight the extent to whichthe medieval Mediterranean was not just an area of conflict but also a hightly permeable frontier across which people, goods and ideas crossed and influenced niehgbouring cultures and societies. We invite papers, together with abstracts, in the fields of archaeology, art and architecture, ethnography, history (including the history of science and medicine), languages, literature, music, philosophy and religion.
Please send abstracts of papers of 300 words maximum together with a brief CV to the organisers, Dr Francois Soyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Rebecca Bridgman (email@example.com). Please send any other enquiries ot this address too.
