Migration(s): Body, Word, Spirit
Migration(s) of various sorts—of people, information, political, religious, and cultural movements—have long transformed the periods, places, and paradigms in which they occur. Recent scholarship has underlined the fundamental importance of migrations in the medieval and early modern periods. Intrinsically interesting in their original context, these historic migrations also provide much-needed perspective on the migrations our world is currently experiencing.
