Royal Nunneries: Call for Papers

Royal Nunneries: Call for Papers

The IAH CAS in cooperation with the Bibliothece Hertziana, Max-Planck-Institute for Art History in Rome and Vivarium - Centre for Research of the Medieval Society and Culture, University of Ostrava organise an international conference "Royal Nunneries at the Centre of Medieval Europe: Art, Architecture, Aesthetics 11th-14th centuries". The conference will take place on 2-4 July 2020 in the Prague’s Na Františku double convent founded by the Přemyslid princess St. Agnes with her brother, king Wenceslas I. We welcome papers from art and architectural historians, as well as from scholars in adjacent fields, focusing on a case study, a region, or royal/courtly entourage, and posing theoretical and methodological questions which could offer a bridge for comparative discussions.
