On Miracles, Travelers and Visionaries in the Iberian World

Presiding Officer: 
Marta Albalá Pelegrín, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

This panel seek proposals dealing with ways of seeing and perceiving the world from the Middle Age to our day. Papers dealing with miraculous accounts, spectacular performances, and travel narratives that explore both allegorical and conceptual visions are welcome. From books of saints, to Iberian travelers through Europe, Asia and the Americas, this panel seeks to examine the narrative voice of those who moved either physically or mentally from one space to another while discovering, performing or even forging, a wondrous world that further complicates notions of perception, performativity and or even contemporary notions of post-truth.
