A multicultural and global world has triggered a widespread and increasing fascination with all aspects and processes related to mobility and exchange in the humanities and social sciences. Like many disciplines in the humanities, medieval and early modern studies is often challenged about its relevance in the contemporary world. One way to respond to these concerns is to engage not just with the historic medieval and early modern past but also with the various medievalisms and early modernisms in contemporary popular culture.

Proposals are invited for papers for a panel engaging with ideas of mobility and exchange in medieval and early modern afterlives in television and cinema, children's and young adult literature, comic books and graphic novels, computer gaming, new media and fandom, and other popular contemporary appropriations and re-imaginings.

Potential topics for papers include but are not limited to:
- Cross-Cultural and/or Inter-Cultural Mobilities and Exchange
- Transnational Mobilities: Migration, Diaspora, Exile, and Homecomings
- Uses of Media and Digital Technology
- Exchange/Mobility and the Body
- Mobility and Place: Situatedness, Belonging, and Home
- Gender-, Race- and Class-Inflected Mobilities and Exchange
- Issues of Translation and Adaptation: Semiotic Mobility and Exchange
- Exchange/Mobility and Performance
- Resistance to Exchange/Mobility
