CFP: Leeds 2011
The Call for Papers for the International Medieval Congress at Leeds for Summer 2011 has been posted. The theme will be “Poor . . . Rich”:
How uneven was the distribution of wealth in medieval communities and polities? How was the distribution of wealth affected by environmental and commercial cycles of paucity and plenty? How was wealth amassed and then redistributed? What were the topographies of wealth and poverty? How permeable were the physical and symbolic boundaries between rich and poor? In what ways did both church and secular authorities attempt to deal with the moral and practical problems arising from poverty and the uneven distribution of wealth?
See here for the full Call for papers and panels.
