Globalising Medieval Studies: Perspectives from a Worldwide Network - A Round Table Discussion

CARMEN has decided to change the format of its annual session at the Leeds International Medieval Congress. Instead of an introductory round table, it will run a session open to everyone developing a topic that is a current focus of CARMEN's attention. In this way CARMEN hopes to show in action to a broad audience the work that it is doing.

Prof. Felicitas Schmieder is organising, on behalf of the CARMEN Executive Committee, a thematic round table entitled Globalising Medieval Studies: Perspectives from a Worldwide Network - A Round Table Discussion on Wednesday 3 July 2013: 19.30-20.30 (session 1430, Leeds University Union, Meeting room 5).

The CARMEN Annual Meeting at Budapest in September 2012 contained an afternoon session devoted to 'Globalising Medieval Studies' with speakers from the USA, Argentina, France, Austria, Russia, China, and Australia making presentations. This highly productive exchange will be developed in this round table discussion. Topics likely to be covered include globalisation of the student and scholarly body, growing interest in the European Middle Ages in Latin America and Asia, changes in the curricula to examine Europe's links with other continents during the Middle Ages, and the study of the comparable historical periods in the Americas, Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region.

Participants include Simon Forde (CARMEN: Worldwide Medieval Network), Naomi Standen (University of Birmingham), Felicitas Schmieder (FernUniversität Hagen), and Carol Symes (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign).

The Round Table is chaired by Elizabeth Tyler, Centre for Medieval Studies, University of York.
