Visualising the Middle Ages
Edited by Eva Frojmovic (University of Leeds). Editorial board: Madeline H. Caviness (Tufts University), Catherine Harding (University of Victoria), Diane Wolfthal (Rice University)
This peer-reviewed book series is dedicated to innovative and transdisciplinary scholarly work on visualities and material cultures from the end of antiquity to the Renaissance. Since the editors desire to puncture the European, even Western European boundaries habitually drawn around things medieval, the geographical and chronological parameters are loose, making it possible to examine the migration of symbols, objects and practices across global geographies and religious/spiritual traditions, and between the Middle Ages and modern medievalism. The series aims to build a bridge between the history of art and other fields in medieval studies: literary theory, manuscript studies, theology/religious studies, cultural anthropology, archaeology and material culture, gender studies. It seeks work with impact beyond disciplinary confines and established methodological paths.
Formats include monographs, essay collections, texts and translations.
