CFP: ANZAMEMS 2017, Mobility and Exchange

For more info see the conference website at: https://anzamems2017.wordpress.com/

We invite delegates from around the world to join us for the 11th Biennial ANZAMEMS Conference at the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, 7-10 February 2017.

Mobility and Exchange

Our theme for ANZAMEMS 2017 is mobility and exchange. We encourage proposals for papers or panels addressing any aspect of this theme, including (but not limited to):

  • social, cultural, and intellectual exchange
  • the circulation of texts, ideas, and people
  • commercial and mercantile exchange
  • legal interchange
  • transport and transportation
  • rural and urban mobilities
  • pilgrimage, exploration, and migration
  • transglobal and trans-temporal medievalisms and early modernisms

We welcome submissions for individual papers or panel proposals. Proposals for a stream of panels on a single theme are also encouraged, normally in sequences of two or three sessions, but with a maximum of five. We encourage panel submissions to nominate a suitably-qualified chair (who is not a paper presenter in that panel), but chairs can also be assigned by the conference convenors. Postgraduate student participation is strongly encouraged; we recommend (but don’t mandate) that all panels should include at least one presenter (or a chair) who has received a doctoral degree.
