The Future of Medieval Studies? – MITTpanel

Leiden, University Library, 20 april 2012

Training Network Mobility of the Transmission of Texts and Ideas


The changing focus in the academic world and the European Research Area presents the humanities with a major challenge. Especially those domains that concentrate on the culture, art and literature of (older) historical periods will have to rethink and redefine their strengths and relevance for the societal challenges. The MITT- panel will address these urgent issues in a discussion that brings together experienced researchers in the field of medieval studies and young scholars. Contributors are the medievalists: Wim Blockmans, Reindert Falkenburg, Hans Jochen Schiewer, Catrien Santing.
