Dear H-Material-Culture members,
Those of you interested in Medieval material culture in the Mediterranean may wish to read a couple of new papers.
Recently, the writing system of a Medieval manuscript was revealed to be proto-Romance: i.e., the ancestor to Spanish and the other modern Romance languages. In addition, it is written with a proto-Italic alphabet. It is the only known document of this kind and therefore has considerable linguistic and historic importance.
The schedule is now available for Visualising Spatial Injustice and Exploitation, June 8th, University of Kent. Featuring keynotes by Miranda Pennell and Alberto Toscano.
Please register for free here:
10.30-11.00 - Welcome
11.00-12.00 - Keynote 1: Miranda Pennell
12.00 - 12.15 - Tea/coffee break
12.15-13.45 - Panel 1
Chair: Patrick Brian Smith
