CONGRESS CANCELED Ibero-Medieval Studies: Taking Stock, Moving Forward (A Roundtable)

Medieval Institute, Western Michigan University

Description

The relevance of medieval studies in general to the present has become both more evident and at the same time fraught, and Iberomedieval studies must assess how the discipline works within this shifting context. This is happening as the organization of IMANA itself is shifting to take on greater collective governance and responsibility, which also merits broader consideration within the context of the social and disciplinary shifts in medieval studies. This roundtable will consist of a conversation among practitioners across all domains, generations, and positions of Iberomedieval studies, to take stock of how the field is structured, how we constitute our community through conversations, work, and organizations like IMANA, and how we can move into the future integral to the larger academic and intellectual work of our time.
