In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic led to heavy restrictions on mobility across the globe; borders were closed, lockdowns imposed and communications moved further online. As we adapt to a new normal with less freedom to roam, travel and physically connect with people and materials, this conference aims to open up a dialogue about the tensions between mobility and immobility in the medieval world.
