CFP: Monastic Europe, Landscape and Settlement (Ennis, 22-25 August 2015)

Call for Papers:
Monastic Europe: Landscape and Settlement. International Conference
Ennis, Co. Clare, Ireland, 22-25 August 2015 
Deadline: 28 November 2014

The Irish Research Council-funded Monastic Ireland: Landscape and Settlement project is a research partnership between the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, Trinity College Dublin, the Discovery Programme and the Department of History, University College Cork. The project is examining the unusually well preserved remains of late medieval monastic buildings in Ireland within their broader European context, with a particular emphasis on their architecture and impact on the landscape around them.

The project team is pleased to announce an international conference, to be held 22-25 August in Ennis, Co. Clare, Ireland. Located in an area rich with the medieval buildings of the European monastic orders, the conference will balance sessions of papers with a number of site visits, and will stimulate a focused academic debate on the impact of monasticism in shaping the development of the physical environment across Europe between c. 1100 and c. 1700. Conference themes will include:

– The topography of medieval monastic settlement (1100-1700) in both urban and rural environments
– The impact of Church reforms on the physical structures and landscapes of monastic foundations
– Monastic space (liturgical, social, and architectural aspects)
– Patronage networks
– Architecture and identities
– Written sources for understanding the monastic environment

We welcome proposals for 20-minute papers exploring this theme across the stated time span, throughout Europe. Papers may deal with either case studies or broader methodological questions, and are not limited to delivery in the English language.

Proposals for posters are also welcomed from doctoral students and early career scholars, and the conference organisers hope to have small subsidies available for accommodation costs>

Please send an email containing both your proposed title and an abstract of no more than 300 words to Dr Rachel Moss at rmoss@tcd.ie. If you intend for apply for a conference subsidy please indicate this on your proposal. Deadline for proposals is Friday, 28 November, 2104.


17-21 October, 2014

The National Center of Manuscripts warmly invites scholars from different fields of research to submit proposals for the International Conference “Tao-Klarjeti”. This is the third conference on the issue.

Rich history and cultural significance of Tao-Klarjeti, which had established herself among the most prominent monastic centers of Eastern Christendom, has generated scholarly interest to the historical province.

In early middle ages Tao-Klarjeti was the flourishing principality and a significant center of the Georgian monastic movement. A big number of ruins of fortresses, churches and monasteries scattered throughout the area corroborate the above. Local religious centers, which drew intellectual resources from entire Georgia, had close cultural contacts with the most significant monastic centers of the Byzantine realm.

Strategic location of Tao-Klarjeti made it a target of neighbouring empires, contributing to political fate of the province and to creation of a multicultural environment.
