New Journal: Convivium. Exchanges and Interactions in the Arts of Medieval Europe, Byzantium, and Mediterranean

New Journal: Convivium. Exchanges and Interactions in the Arts of Medieval Europe, Byzantium, and Mediterranean (Seminarium Kondakovianum Series Nova)
Deadline for Article Submission: March and November each year

conviviumConvivium restarts and continues the glorious Seminarium Kondakovianum, the journal of the institute founded in memory of Nikodim Kondakov in 1927, which represented the desire to maintain and deepen Kondakov’s pioneering scholarly work in Byzantine and medieval studies, celebrated not only in the Russian and Czech worlds but also in western Europe. Convivium covers an extended chronological range, from the Early Christian period until the end of the Middle Ages, which in central Europe lasted well beyond the Renaissance in Italy. Equally vast is the range of subjects it will treat. Whereas its central concern remains art history, that is, whatever pertains to images, monuments, the forms of visual and aesthetic experience, it is also open to many disciplines tied to art history in the deepest sense: anthropology, liturgy, archaeology, historiography and, obviously, history itself. The goal is to ensure that the journal will provide a 360o opening onto the field and the research methods being deployed in it.

Two numbers of the journal will be issued every year; all articles will be approved by a blind peer-review process. The first will focus on a theme, and the second will be a miscellany. Each issue will comprise five to ten articles (in French, English, Italian, or German), between 40,000 and 60,000 strokes long and fifteen illustrations (some in color). Convivium will be published in paper and digital format and distributed by Brepols. To submit an article, contact : convivium@earlymedievalstudies.com.

For further information on editors, editorial board, advisory board and style guidelines, see: http://www.earlymedievalstudies.com/convivium.html

Journal: The Medieval Globe

2844248Announcing The Medieval Globe. Connectivity~Communication~Exchange, a  new biannual academic journal. The Medieval Globe (TMG) is a peer-reviewed journal to be launched in 2014, published in both print and digital formats.  It is based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and sponsored by CARMEN, the Worldwide Medieval Network.  It is dedicated to exploring the modes of communication, materials of exchange, and myriad interconnections among regions, communities, and individuals in an era central to human history.

The Medieval Globe promotes scholarship in three related areas of study:

  • the direct and indirect means by which peoples, goods, and ideas came into contact,
  • the deep roots of global developments,
  • the ways in which perceptions of “the medieval” have been (and are) constructed around the world.

Contributions to a global understanding of the medieval period need not encompass the globe in any territorial sense. The Medieval Globe advances a new theory and praxis of medieval studies by bringing into view phenomena that have been rendered practically or conceptually invisible by anachronistic boundaries, categories, and expectations: these include networks, communities, bodies of knowledge, forms of movement, varieties of interaction, and identities. It invites submissions that analyze actual or potential connections, trace trajectories and currents, address topics of broad interest, or pioneer portable methodologies.
