The Global Turn in Medieval Studies

THE 94TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE MEDIEVAL ACADEMY OF AMERICA

Medievalists across various disciplines are taking a more geographically and methodologically global approach to the study of the Middle Ages. This year’s meeting spotlights the “global turn” in medieval studies, treating the Middle Ages as a broad historical, cultural, and geographic phenomenon. Plenary speakers include David Wallace (University of Pennsylvania), Nora Berend (University of Cambridge), and Columba Stewart (Hill Museum and Manuscript Library). More: medievalacademy.org


The meeting is jointly hosted by the Medieval Academy of America, Bryn Mawr College, Delaware Valley Medieval Association, Haverford College, St. Joseph’s University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Villanova University. Cosponsored by the Wolf Humanities Center.
