TitelMedieval Media: Special Issue of Seminar: A Journal of Germanic Studies
BeschreibungCFP: Medieval Media. Special Issue of Seminar: A Journal of Germanic Studies
Markus Stock and Ann Marie Rasmussen, eds.

In recent years, the mediality of premodern and early modern literary and cultural communication has become a focal point in Medieval and Early Modern Studies. Media of transmission, communication, and dissemination have received heightened scrutiny. Scholarship is expanding our understanding of ways in which different kinds of material objects serve as media, and there is renewed interest in the role played by materiality and mediality in the re-circulation, appropriation and adaptation of shared stories, images, and ideas. For a special theme issue of Seminar: A Journal of Germanic Studies, we welcome contributions that take stock of this recent shift in scholarly attention and that probe questions of medieval and early modern mediality from broadly conceived disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. We seek to include contributions from a range of different fields in medieval and early modern studies, drawing on various frameworks and approaches, including: history; art history; literary studies; textual criticism; material studies; architectural history; editorial theory and practice; digital humanities. We are seeking contributions focusing on case studies as well as contributions discussing broader methodological questions.

Lines of inquiry may include:
· Orality, writing, print: the simultaneity of medieval and early modern media.
· Text and image reconceptualized as forms of intermediality.
· Types of media material: stone, wood, parchment, wax, metal, voice.
· Relationship between the media’s materiality and the semantics of texts or content more broadly construed.
· Manuscripts as artefacts.
· Rules, types, and situations of media use.
· Histories and concepts of media.
· Mediality in medieval and early modern Catholic religious thought (annunciation, incarnation, sacraments, liturgy).
· Mediality in medieval and early modern Judaism and Protestantism (preaching; reading; use of images).
· The body as medium.
· The charisma of objects.
· Remote communication (messengers, letters etc.).
· Media within media: imitation, representation, and appropriation of different types of media in other media.
· Premodern and early modern multi-media: song, dance, play, images, word, text.
· Spaces and places of media use: court, castle, monastery, church, city houses, city streets, villages, etc.
· The Where of the message: walls, books, bodies, badges, etc.
· Social distribution of media use: media of peasants; burghers; nobles, of members of religious orders, etc.
· Medieval texts and images in contemporary media (comic books; television; computer games; film).
· Modern digital tools offering new research approaches to the medieval past.
