Description

The globalisation of research and scholarship is an important new turn in Medieval Studies, greatly assisted by the digital universe in which we now live. This roundtable will focus on the ways in which respective disciplines view the Medieval, bringing differences and similarities to the fore to foster new ways of thinking about what we do and how we work between disciplines. Speakers will give eight-minute position papers in which they will address how the Middle Ages is constructed in their fields and how these fields take into account other areas of study in the Medieval. The purpose of this roundtable is to problematize our (disciplinarily determined) perspectives on what is authentic: what constitutes the Medieval for each discipline and how we can think about a 'real Middle Ages'.
