CFP: Ex Arabico in Latinum: Studies in Mediterranean Translation Movements, For ICM Kalamazoo ’14

Deadline: 15 September 2013

49th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, Michigan, May 8-11, 2014

Organizer: Anthony Minnema; Chair: Thomas Burman

Arabic-to-Latin translation movements are underrepresented at conferences of medieval studies since researchers often stride a line between Europe and the Middle East while not fitting completely into either category. However, the demand increases for research on the exchange of ideas across the Mediterranean world. In order to create a forum at ICMS for this research, this session welcomes papers on a variety of topics related to translation from Arabic to Latin (and vice versa) during the Middle Ages, including but not limited to translators, methods and theories of translation, patrons, manuscripts, circulation, readers, and the use of translated material by Latin and Arabic scholars. The disciplinary focus is open to translation of works of philosophy, religion, science, medicine, and poetry. Please submit a 300-word abstract to the panel organizer, Anthony Minnema (, by 15 September 2013.
