Description

The IMC, previously the Indiana Medieval Graduate Consortium, has been invested in creating and fostering intercollegiate opportunities and support since its inception. In a world of enhanced possibilities for connectivity and increasingly sophisticated digital resources, we would like to continue imagining ways that scholars both in and out of Indiana might digitially and physically share resources, promote collaboration, and advocate for the value and vitality of our work on the medieval and early modern periods. To this end, IMC will Sponsor a Roundtable Session to present and disuses various invaluable resources based within the midwest, the primary goal being to make these resources more accessible to scholars working both in the midwest and around the world. This Roundtable will feature presentations from IU's Lilly Library, the Newberry Library of Chicago, and digital humanists from Purdue; to round out the session, we invite presentations on midwest-based digital or “traditional” resources that offer any sort of valuable resource to scholars working in medieval and early modern periods. Secondarily, we hope that accompanying discussion will allow the room to consider the ways these resources can supplement and create collaboration between universities and individuals, as well as how these resources speak to the state of the humanities and value of our work as period scholars of all disciplines and of all methodologies.
