Call for Papers: “Inclusion and Exclusion in Medieval Central Europe. Sixth Biennial Conference of MECERN” (19–21 February 2025, Munich)

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

The Medieval Central Europe Research Network (MECERN) invites to Munich (Germany) for its Sixth Biennial Conference in 2025 on 19–21 February. The conference is dedicated to the complex social hierarchies and differences that permeated medieval societies and created various areas of tension. These could be rooted in different perceptions of ethnic, social, religious, and economic backgrounds. Also, in recent years, medieval studies as increasingly focused on the significance of gender diversity for medieval societies. Based on these developments, the conference investigates categories of difference, such as race, class and gender and their
function for social inclusion and exclusion in the medieval world.
The organisers welcome contributions that deal with mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion and their impact on medieval community and identity building. In particular, they would like to encourage contributions with a special focus on gender-related topics. They welcome proposals from scholars researching history, from political, social, cultural, economic, ecclesiastical, and urban, to art, literary, intellectual, legal history, historiography, auxiliary sciences, archaeology, and historical anthropology.
Both individual and panel submissions are welcome. Panels will be 90 minutes; papers should be 15 to 20 minutes.
Please submit your proposals by Monday, 15 July, 2024 through website.

Notifications of acceptance will be given by 15 September, 2024. Conference fees are waved for all participants due to funding by the Department for
Medieval History (LMU Munich). Early career scholars can apply for conference travel stipends covering their accommodation during the conference. Applications for bursaries can be indicated in the submission form.

Organization: Julia Burkhardt, Cynthia Stöckle
