Description

This session seeks to explore how scholars of medieval Castile work with and sometimes around troublesome sources. There is a relative paucity of textual evidence from medieval Castile, and some scholars have therefore gravitated towards its more well-documented neighbors in eastern Iberia, including Catalonia and Aragon. Scholars of Castile during the High Middle Ages, therefore, are obliged to be resourceful. This panel seeks to bring together scholars of medieval Castile to discuss methodological creativity – doing more with less. It will foster discussion on interdisciplinary and collaborative research and the value of looking across disciplines for relevant source material. Maya Soifer Irish
