Conference

Recent books on memory in the Middle Ages are stimulating the interest of scholars across a range of disciplines. The theme of citation and intertextuality continues to attract attention, especially that of literary studies but equally scholars from other disciplines concerned with the Middle Ages, including history, art history, religious studies, musicology. This conference's aim was to stimulate further scrutiny of these themes with papers exploring intertextual practices and manifestations of borrowings, modellings, allusions, and other evocations of pre-existing material, and on the overall role of memory in medieval culture.
