Call for Submissions : Dialogue and Disputation in the Medieval Mediterranean (Medieval Encounters)

Scholarly articles of between 5,000 and 8,000 words are being solicited to complete a prospective special issue of Medieval Encounters, to be edited by Alex Novikoff (Fordham University) and Brian Catlos (University of Colorado Boulder/University of California Santa Cruz). Submissions should deal with some aspect of inter-communal or intra-communal debate among Christians, Muslims, or Jews and engage with the Mediterranean as a category of analysis, preferably between 600 CE and 1500 CE. All aspect of intellectual dialogue and religious disputation are welcome, and submissions need not necessarily address multiple religious populations (for instance inter-communal debates among Muslims or between Christians), but the framing of the concepts should be clear and an effort to connect the project to ongoing discussions of the Mediterranean is expected.

If interested, send a short note to Alex Novikoff ( and Brian Catlos ( by January 10, 2015. Final submissions will be needed by February 15.
