Call for Proposals

1. The NUME Research Group organizes a roundtable entitled Nature and Dream: Studies on the representation of reality in the Middle Ages.

We welcome studies addressing the problem of mental representation of the real in philosophical, literary and artistic fields, as well as the impact this representation has on specific aspects of European medieval culture.

5. Speakers will be required to pay a participation fee of 60€.
