Abstract

CARMEN (the ‘Co-operative for the Advancement of Research through a Medieval European Network’) is a worldwide network, bringing together groups of medievalists (including ‘federations of centres’, such as national or supranational research centres, disciplinary bodies, or societies of individuals) which operate at a level above that of individual universities, as well as individual universities, and public and private bodies (e.g. museums, galleries, publishers), actively involved in the teaching or research on the Middle Ages (c. 400-1500). This Business Meeting is open to all interested parties, old and new, and will discuss recent funding bids to the European Science Foundation, and explore options for the longer-term sustainable financing of CARMEN itself. Please bring your own sandwiches and refreshments.
