From the earliest sea journeys, the challenges of coastal and ocean travel have rendered the sea liminal. Vessels at sea existed between landmasses, nations, and political systems, while limits of communication, high incidence of shipwreck, and vagaries of weather and navigation meant that to be at sea was, figuratively, to exist between life and death, especially from the point of view of those on land. The sea was, and is, a realm of mystery; its inaccessible depths and the workings of its global systems resist human mastery. As a means of travel, exploration, warfare, trade and imperial expansion, the sea's historical and cultural importance for maritime nations has long been reflected in their literature and art.

Panel CFP, ANZAMEMS 2017 - Mobility and Exchange in Medieval and Early Modern Afterlives

A multicultural and global world has triggered a widespread and increasing fascination with all aspects and processes related to mobility and exchange in the humanities and social sciences. Like many disciplines in the humanities, medieval and early modern studies is often challenged about its relevance in the contemporary world. One way to respond to these concerns is to engage not just with the historic medieval and early modern past but also with the various medievalisms and early modernisms in contemporary popular culture.
