CFP: Jerusalem: The Holy City as Interreligious Experience (International Congress on Medieval Studies Kalamazoo 2021), deadline 15 September 2020

Sponsor: Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS), Stanford University

Co-Ordinator: Ana Núñez (

This panel contributes to conversations that explore Jerusalem as a space of central importance to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Through critical rereadings of textual accounts and material remains, the papers in this panel will highlight the dynamic ways in which Jerusalem was simultaneously shared, contested, and negotiated among Judaism, Christianity, and Islam from Late Antiquity through to the late Middle Ages. This panel encourages an interdisciplinary approach, e.g. perspectives from history, literature, religious studies, art history. Since this panel focuses on interreligious experiences of Jerusalem, we especially welcome comparative papers that explore this topic from the perspective of two or more religious communities.

Deadline 15 September 2020 – send abstracts to Ana Núñez (
