The Global Middle Ages

How do writers and artists such St. Augustine, Macrobius, Roger Bacon,

cartographical, and other ideas about the world complement or contradict
each other? Do concerns of genre and audience complicate the textual or
artistic global imaginary? What critical concepts are most useful in
analyzing representations of the world: hybridity, frontier,
cosmopolitanism, utopia, insularity?

Proposals are sought for papers that address geography, travel,
cartography, and imagined worlds.
