Art in the Global Middle Ages

The programme combines study of the arts and their audiences in Europe with those in non-Christian cultures (Islam and China). The main focus is on issues stemming from consideration of cultural exchange and interaction between West and East; 1 example is the practice of exchanging gifts, its traditions, diplomatic significance and intellectual consequences; the programme also considers issues concerning pilgrimage and conquest, and addresses questions arising from study of the rise of global trade and travel.
