Call for Papers: Encountering Medieval Iconography in the Twenty-First Century: Scholarship, Social Media, and Digital Methods: A Roundtable (Deadline 15 September 2018)

treadmillcrane54th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, MI, May 9 – 12, 2019
Deadline: Sep 15, 2018

Encountering Medieval Iconography in the Twenty-First Century: Scholarship, Social Media, and Digital Methods: A Roundtable

Organizers: M. Alessia Rossi and Jessica Savage (Index of Medieval Art, Princeton University)
Sponsored by the Index of Medieval Art, Princeton University

Stemming from the launch of the new database and enhancements of search technology and social media at the Index of Medieval Art, this roundtable addresses the many ways we encounter medieval iconography in the twenty-first century. We invite proposals from emerging scholars and a variety of professionals who are teaching with, blogging about, and cataloguing medieval iconography. This discussion will touch on the different ways we consume and create information with our research, shed light on original approaches, and discover common goals.

Participants in this roundtable will give short introductions (5-7 minutes) on issues relevant to their area of specialization and participate in a discussion on how they use online resources, such as image databases, to incorporate the study of medieval iconography into their teaching, research, and public outreach. Possible questions include: What makes an online collection “teaching-friendly” and accessible for student discovery? How does social media, including Twitter, Facebook, and blogging, make medieval image collections more visible? How do these platforms broaden interest in iconography and connect users to works of art? What are the aims and impact of organizations such as, the Index, the Getty, the INHA, the Warburg, and ICONCLASS, who are working with large stores of medieval art and architecture information? How can we envisage a wider network and discussion of professional practice within this specialized area?

Please send a 250-word abstract outlining your contribution to this roundtable and a completed Participant Information Form (available via the Congress Submissions website: https://wmich.edu/medievalcongress/submissions) by September 15 to M. Alessia Rossi (marossi@princeton.edu) and Jessica Savage (jlsavage@princeton.edu). More information about the Congress can be found here: https://wmich.edu/medievalcongress.

Scholarships and Fellowships: Two PhD Positions: Alchemy in the Making: From ancient Babylonia via Graeco-Roman Egypt into the Byzantine, Syriac and Arabic traditions (1500 BCE -1000 AD), University of Bologna (Deadline 14th May 2018)

Two PhD positions (3 years each) are available at the University of Bologna (Department of Philosophy and Communication studies) within the ERC project (Consolidator Grant): “Alchemy in the Making: From ancient Babylonia via Graeco-Roman Egypt into the Byzantine, Syriac and Arabic traditions (1500 BCE -1000 AD)”, Acronym: AlchemEast.

The AlchemEast project is devoted to the study of alchemical theories and practices as they appeared and developed in distinct, albeit contiguous (both chronologically and geographically) areas: Graeco-Roman Egypt, Byzantium, and the Near East, from Ancient Babylonian Times to the early Islamic Period. Applicants are expected to propose research projects dealing with the ancient alchemical tradition.

Proposals may focus on the analysis of a specific set of primary sources — depending on the historical period on which the applicant prefers to focus on, primary sources may include alchemical writings in Akkadian, Greek, Syriac or Arabic. The proposals may also focus on a wider and cross-cutting analysis of topics connected to important issues pertaining to the ancient alchemical science and its relations with close fields, such as natural philosophy and medicine.

The doctoral research shall result either in editions and translations of ancient alchemical writings or in monographs focused on central issues of the ancient history of alchemy.

The two scholarships are part of the PhD programme: “Philosophy, Science, Cognition and Semiotics”
