Abstract

The round table will examine different methodological approaches to medieval mystics and memory. Focusing on late medieval Dutch and English mystics, this round table will explore theological, historical, feminist, neurological, and historiographical perspectives on how these writers understood the memory and are remembered.

Participants include Rob Faesen (KU Leuven / Universiteit Antwerpen), Einat Klafter (Tel Aviv University), and Godelinde Gertrude Perk (Mittuniversitets, Sundsvall).
