AbstractThis year Medica (the Society for the Study of Healing in the Middle Ages) will be sponsoring a session and a round table discussion related to the movement and transfer of medical knowledge between and across different types of boundaries: geographical, societal, professional, religious, linguistic, material, chronological, etc. These sessions seek to examine various issues related to itineraries of medical knowledge, intended and unintended audiences, and the early modern reuse of medical manuscripts.

Participants include Chiara Benati (Università degli Studi di Genova), Nichola Harris (State University of New York, Ulster), and Lori Jones (Carleton University, Ottawa).
