AbstractMALMECC (Music and Late Medieval European Court Cultures) is an ERC Advanced Grant-funded project that re-configures European court cultures of the later Middle Ages (1250-1450) within a dynamic network of gender relations, dynastic and institutional affiliations, pre-modern material, and cultural geographies obscured by today's nation states, and the performative ecologies typical of courtly life. In doing so, the project emphatically crosses disciplinary boundaries within humanities research. With the PI as moderator and co-presenter, the MALMECC team will present initial results of their collaborative research. Methodological and practical issues that arise from bringing together an art historian, a literary historian, a music historian, and a general historian in a single research team will also be addressed.
