CALL FOR PAPERS: The Crusades and Visual Culture

Essays sought for an edited interdisciplinary volume

Current disciplinary studies on the crusades have explored a number of
new modes of approach to the interrelationships between crusading and
medieval cultures. The integration of crusading ideology into the
general fabric of medieval western society has been explored by
numerous scholars in the fields of history and literature. However, a
lacuna remains in the explorations of how the themes, ideologies, and
concepts of crusading impacted medieval visual culture. The conceptual
and theoretical examinations of medieval material culture have
produced nuanced, evocative studies in numerous areas, and the same
multifaceted approaches have much to offer to explorations of the
connections between crusading and the visual arts.

Building upon conference sessions in the U.S. and the U.K., this
volume will be a necessary and provocative first step
towards the integration of crusading history and the study of medieval
visual cultures. Beyond mere iconographic studies, the essays in this
volume will investigate artistic representations of crusading and the
impact of crusading on the visual culture of the medieval world. They
will reflect on the relationship between the study of ideas of
crusading and the various media (manuscripts, sculpture, mural
paintings, architecture, etc.) in which those ideas were visualized.
The essays will cover a broad chronological range, from ca. 1100 to
ca. 1500, and will explore the visualization and/or appropriation of
crusading themes in both Western and non-Western (Eastern Christian,
Muslim or Jewish) works.

Abstracts of no more than 200 words for articles between 5 000 and 10
000 words in length should be submitted to Dr Elizabeth Lapina at
elizabeth.lapina at durham.ac.uk along with a current CV. Abstracts
should be submitted no later than December 1 2011. Please note that we
would like to receive the articles by September 1 2012.

We are currently discussing the volume with Palgrave and Ashgate and
hope to have the volume in print by late 2013.
