Call for papers: Technical Knowledge in Europe. From written text to archaeological evidences (13th-16th centuries)

International Meeting

Córdoba 17-19 september 2015

The international meeting Technical Knowledge in Europe will review the key historiographical subjects regarding artistic and industrial technology in the Late Middle Ages and the first century of the Modern Period. One of the meeting’s core targets is to highlight the variety of methods with which the issue can be approached, from the study of the written record to archaeological investigation; and from the examination of technical recipes to the scientific analysis of works of art and archaeological materials.

The meeting has been organised within the framework of research project Plan Nacional HAR2012-37357 (El conocimiento científico y técnico en la Península Ibérica (siglos XIII-XVI): producción, difusión y aplicaciones), funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, and will gather together in Cordoba some of the foremost European specialists on the subject.

The Organising Committee is open to the presentation of papers, which must relate to one of the following four key topics:

Industrial and artistic technologies in various fields (textile, leather, metal, milling, glass ...)
Recipes and other sources for the study of crafts and artistic technologies (localisation, edition, content ...)
Scientific analysis of artistic and archaeological items
Experimental reproduction of historical technical recipes
