Studies In Medieval And Renaissance Book Cultur...

This series presents collections of essays on themes of vital interest to medieval and Renaissance studies. Previous volumes have explored medievalism and its Renaissance counterpart, future trends in research, individual and cultural identity, peace and negotiation, material culture, fear, varieties of devotion, reading and literacy, translatio: the transmission of culture, as well as feast, famine, and fasting. These themes have been the focus of the annual conference sponsored by the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (Arizona State University, Tempe). Essays for the ASMAR collections are both revised and expanded versions of selected papers delivered at the conference and papers solicited from other scholars in the field. In addition to collections of essays, the series publishes occasional monograph volumes.

Medieval and Renaissance studies is an interdisciplinary program in which a student combines a concentration in medieval or Renaissance civilization with a major or concentration in one of the following departments:

Students considering the special concentration in medieval and Renaissance studies should consult with the director in advance of course registration to ensure that their selection of courses will count towards the special concentration.

Offering a broad overview of memorialization practices across Europe and the Mediterranean, this book examines local customs through particular case studies. These essays explore complementary themes through the lens of commemorative art, including social status; personal and corporate identities; the intersections of mercantile, intellectual, and religious attitudes; upward (and downward) mobility; and the cross-cultural exchange.

First-year students interested in medieval and Renaissance studies should consult with the director soon after arriving on campus. First-year students considering majoring in the program should elect some of the introductory courses in Greek and Roman studies, philosophy, religion, political science, and history during their first year at the College. Students should select introductory courses in the two disciplines that they hope to study at the higher level. Art 105 provides a grounding for the program, as do the historical sections of English 101. Students should think carefully about the language that they plan to take in the program. The Dark Ages (History 116) and High Middle Ages (History 117) are valuable introductions to medieval history. Latin is highly recommended for students planning to enter graduate school in medieval studies. Since many majors study abroad, it is wise to begin or continue a language appropriate to the country anticipated.

The Program in Medieval Studies at Emory University promotes interdisciplinary and cross-cultural studies of medieval societies and cultures from Late Antiquity to the seventeenth century by offering a Graduate Certificate Program in Medieval Studies for graduate students working in departmental doctoral programs.

Our mission is to enable and promote the most expansive, creative, and daring scholarship in medieval and renaissance studies. We do this not only by fostering a vibrant intellectual community for the faculty at our three universities, but also by publishing forward-looking, vanguard research through our in-house press. ACMRS promotes work that is historically grounded and theoretically expansive, with the aim of advancing dialogues that reach into the present moment and point us to different, more inclusive, futures.

Our award-winning faculty represents a wide range of disciplines, and we boast special strengths in the history of the book and reading practices; in the religious and intellectual history and culture of late antique, medieval, and Renaissance Europe and the Near East; and in medieval and Renaissance epic traditions. Our interdisciplinary approach and collaborative enterprises contribute to the intellectual life of the UT campus, the Knoxville community, and beyond.

The Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Student Association is an interdisciplinary association of graduate students in medieval and renaissance fields, designed to serve academic, professional, and social needs of these students.

In 2005, Gibson Library Connections launched the Canadian Electronic Library (CEL), with the aim of bringing books and monographs published in Canada into the digital environment. The Institute released its entire catalogue of in-print publications up to 2008 on the ebrary platform (now ProQuest Ebook Central) through the CEL. This provides all researchers, in medieval studies but also in a wide range of other disciplines, working in authorized libraries with instant access to every title licensed. A core collection of 248 PIMS titles is now in every university library in Canada as a result of a license with the Canadian Research Knowledge Network. Selected PIMS titles continue to be added to the CEL through the dèsLibris platform.

An introduction to the interdisciplinary study of the medieval and Renaissance periods through the study of a particular topic. Recent studies: The Crusades, Monasticism, Chivalry, Elizabethan England, the Birth of Italian Literature, Pilgrimage, and European Encounters with Islam.

Noel Blanco Mourelle is a specialist in medieval and early modern Iberian languages and cultures. His teaching and research engages with themes of religious conversion, theories of universalism, political theology, and history of the book. He always aim to situate these questions within the larger frame of the Mediterranean, as space of convergence and negotiation among different narratives of worship, and to bridge the culture of the past with current political and social questions. His book-project, titled Learning Machines, focuses on the intellectual legacy of the Majorcan theologian and preacher Ramon Llull and the transformation of his Art through medieval and early modern book technology.

Much of Professor Nirenberg's work has focused on the ways in which Jewish, Christian, and Islamic cultures constitute themselves by interrelating with or thinking about each other. His work on these three religious traditions ranges across literary, artistic, historiographic, and philosophical genres. But even more generally, his interest seems is in the history of how the possibilities and limits of community and communication have been imagined. In order to explore these more general questions he is engaged in two long-term thematic projects: the first, a history of love's central place in a number of ancient, medieval, and modern idealizations of communication and exchange, and the second, a parallel study of poison as a representation of communication's dangers. And finally, as is a tradition here at the University of Chicago, he is also interested in exploring the grounds of possibility for knowledge. To that end he is collaborating with a mathematician (Ricardo Nirenberg) on a book exploring the various types of sameness that underpin the relative claims of different forms of knowledge, in the hope of discovering new ways of understanding both the powers and the limits of the sciences and the humanities.

Willemien Otten studies the history of Christianity and Christian thought with a focus on the medieval and the early Christian intellectual tradition, especially in the West, and an emphasis on the continuity of Platonic themes. She has worked on the Carolingian thinker Johannes Scottus Eriugena and on twelfth-century humanistic thinkers including Peter Abelard. Her preferred approach is to analyze medieval thought and theology as an amalgam of biblical, classical, and patristic influences which, woven together, constitute their own intellectual matrix. Within this matrix the place and role of nature and humanity interest her most. Her studies in medieval humanism and her extensive work in the reception history of Saint Augustine inform her abiding interest in the Reformation and the thought of John Calvin. More information.

Professor Steinberg joined the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures faculty in 2003. His scholarship focuses on medieval Italian literature, especially on Dante, Boccaccio, Petrarch, and the early lyric. Related interests include manuscript culture/material philology, reception studies, the connections between legal and literary culture, and medieval political theory. More information.

Readers include: Medieval scholars, librarians, and archivists specializing in medieval studies and medieval texts, especially those made possible by the emergence of digital resources and by engagement with the digital humanities

Medieval and early modern Jewish cultural and intellectual history, history of the Jewish book and the impact of print on Jewish culture and thought in the early modern period, the cultural role of Jewish philosophy in the formation of early modern Jewish identities, Jewish thought and intellectual culture in early modern Italy, the Jewish Enlightenment movement and its relation to the medieval and early modern Jewish past

Professor Moulton is an active member of the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, chairing the editorial board for the book series Late Medieval and Early Modern Studies. Moulton is fluent in French and Italian, as well as reading Latin, Spanish, Ancient Greek, and a little German. His other interests include Classical culture, Renaissance art history, and film studies.
