The Annual AEMA Conference, 2018: Invasion, Migration, Communication and Trade.
New evidence is being uncovered by new methods;
digital humanities allow diverse sources to be accessed
more widely. New knowledge of the pre-modern world
suggests that it was more interconnected than previously
thought. Although the early medieval period continues to
exist in the popular imagination as backward and insular,
in many ways it is a period marked by a keen interest in
foreign cultures and places. It seems particularly apt, at
this moment when much of the English-speaking world
is retreating into isolationist policies, despite the global
nature of the challenges we face, for AEMA to take as its
theme cultural exchange; the movement of people, goods
and ideas in the late antique and medieval periods in all
cultural, geographic, religious and linguistic settings.
