Higgins Kalamazoo 2014 CFP

Type: Call for Papers
Date: --
Continuing our wildly popular and well-attended series of sessions, we
invite historians, archaeologists, theater historians and performers, and
scholars of dance and music, as well as historical fencers, armorers,
brewers, textile researchers, and scholars in other fields to submit
papers for a unique interdisciplinary session on the insights into history
that can be gained from attempts to reconstruct medieval arts, as well as
the historiographical issues involved in such work.

In keeping with our traditional theme of "Insights from Re-construction,
Re-enactment, and Re-creation," proposals for papers should discuss either
the interpretation of medieval material evidence or practical insights
gained from reconstructing such artifacts, as well as how these insights
modify existing scholarship or solve a research question and the
historiographical issues involved therein—i.e., to what extent we can hope
to play music, perform passion plays, weave cloth, brew mead, make armor,
or wield swords as medieval people did, and why.
