Abstract

People throughout the medieval period have related to and depended on animals (real or imagined) for many reasons, and yet in many ways animals seem to be relegated to the edges of urban spaces, art and architecture, law, cultural history or even the known world. This session will focus on the always fascinating liminal position of animals in Images.
