If there’s one way in which I would characterize Friday’s materialism sessions, I’d say they were “transgressive,” in that each panel sought to overturn or undermine, or just plain do away with the boundaries between disciplines, between objects, and between epistemologies.
The day’s sessions were:
- Quantum Medievalisms by postmedieval, organized by yours truly
- Transgressive Materialities by the Material Collective, organized by Heather Coffey and Holly Silvers
- Material Iberia II: Shaping Bodies in Literature and Art across the Abrahamic Traditions by the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies, organized by Jessica Boon
Each of these sessions was sooo good that they could be summarized in a full blog post. See the storified tweets from them here:
