CALL FOR PAPERS
Late Medieval Towns in Transition to Early Modernity
2nd Interdisciplinary Workshop for postgraduates and postdocs by TZM (Trier Centre for Medieval Studies)
Trier University and City Library Trier
9-10 November 2017
Researching (late medieval) towns is a topic of genuine interdisciplinarity. The classic, but questionable incision of the year 1500 as a border between the Middle Ages and the Modern Era cannot be applied to the history of towns. With these preliminary thoughts in mind, our (post)doctoral workshop reflects the ways towns and their citizens react to the multiple factors (e.g. innovation of moveable type book printing, reactions to the Protestant Reformation) they are confronted with in the transition from the medieval to the modern world.
We are calling for papers that deal with relevant aspects like paradigm shift or persistency, change or continuity from different perspectives and establish connections to other disciplines in the humanities area. Topics of interest are a. o. questions about medial change, diversity, (re)construction of town knowledge, history of emotions or communication scenarios. Case studies, but also more general and theoretical papers are welcome.
