IMEMS seminar series for 2016-17 will focus on landscapes, with prestigious invited speakers across a wide range of disciplines from the early medieval to the early modern covering the topic from a variety of angles informed by the latest research. The talks will concern ecocritical and environmental approaches to culture, landscape archaeology, sacred landscapes and pilgrimage, medieval concepts of geography and medieval maps, topographies, seascapes, the moral economy of the peasantry, and peasant collectivity. Each talk is followed by a reception, offering a chance to get to know colleagues in the field of medieval and early modern studies.
