Space and Settlement in the Middle Ages
Space and Settlement in the Middle Ages is an international, interdisciplinary conference that explores all aspects of human settlement and the use of space throughout the Middle Ages. The annual conference focuses primarily on new and emerging research into space and settlement in medieval Ireland, however also explores space and settlement in medieval Europe. The conference aims to bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners from the academic, commercial, cultural heritage, and industrial sectors to promote discussion of current and evolving developments in the study of space and settlement during the medieval period.
We are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for Space and Settlement in the Middle Ages X, to be held on 22 – 23 March 2019 at the Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin. This year our theme is “New Approaches in Medieval Settlement.” Settlements are ever shifting aspects of the physical world, and they transcend a spatial relationship with the landscape and people. They define and are defined by socioeconomic structures, culture, materiality, identity, and heritage. For the tenth annual Space and Settlement in the Middle Ages, we seek to understand how new avenues of research including technological and theoretical developments are changing our perceptions on medieval settlement and what it means for the future of the field. With the tenth installment of this conference, we hope to present new and upcoming research on medieval settlement. We seek abstracts from scholars of any disciplines and career stage covering any aspect of medieval settlement across Europe including but not limited to:
• Built structures
• Medieval versus current perspectives on space
• Travel and trade
Abstracts should be no longer 250 words and are due to be submitted by January 21st, 2019. Please include your name, email address, and institutional affiliation as well.
