Abstract

Like at previous IMCs, the Medieval Animal Data-Network organizes a round table concentrating on one animal and its position and perception in the medieval world. This year, it is the dolphin, an animal that could, on the one hand, be well known by the inhabitants of certain European regions, on the other hand, however, a sea dweller about whom one did not know much. The discussants, in the panel as well as, to be hoped, in the audience, will include historians of culture, literature, and religion, art historians, and zooarchaeologists.

Participants include Alice Choyke (Central European University, Budapest), Ingrid Matschinegg (Universität Salzburg), Irina Metzler (Swansea University), Anastasija Ropa (Latvian Academy of Sport Education, Riga), and Mónica Ann Walker Vadillo (University of Oxford).
