The Mediterranean Seminar (www.mediterraneanseminar.org), the Malta Study Center and the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (www.hmml.org) at Saint John’s University (Collegeville, MN) in conjunction with the Mediterranean Studies Research Collaborative, Center for Medieval Studies, 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 11 & 12 November 2016.
We invite abstracts for papers on the topic “Magic, Medicine, and Technology in the Mediterranean” for the workshop to be held on Friday, 11 November. 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. For information on the seminar, please click here.
