Windows into the Medieval Mediterranean
Despite the excellent work done in the fields of Mediterranean history and studies, the Medieval period remains an area of less attention. Contributors are sought for an edited collection, under contract with publishers Taylor and Francis, that illuminates the many worlds of the Medieval Mediterranean, from 470 to 1350, as a space both geographically unified around a single body of water, while simultaneously one of great cultural, political, economic, religious, and linguistic diversity. The volume, resting on a foundation of scholarly essays, is intended to provide both students, undergraduate and first year graduate, and faculty with resources to consider the complexities and dynamism of the Medieval Mediterranean. Each chapter will consist of several essays as follows:
- A narrative portion between 2000 and 3000 words
- Accompanying primary source materials, written and/or visual, illustrative of the author’s argument and meant to engage students more deeply into the topic.
