Abstract

In light of the most recent attacks on the humanities that are defunding students and departments, labeling the subject as ‘non-productive’ and closing or slashing departments, this round table seeks to share the experiences of the international medieval community and explore how the academic community can respond.

Participants include Francesco Dall’Aglio (Centro Studi Luca Giordano), Helen Foxhall Forbes (Durham University), and Bj√∂rn Weiler (Aberystwyth University).
