Abstract

This round table builds on previous discussions on the topic of cartularies and history-writing in the four-session strand given in 2016 (Rethinking Cartularies 900-1200: Cartularies as History, History in Cartularies). Participants are invited to share their ideas on the place of cartularies within the practice of historical writing, in preparation for a forthcoming volume of essays on this topic. In doing so, we hope to clarify the main themes for discussion in the volume and to identify topics and examples of the genre for further discussion in the volume.

Participants include Robert F. Berkhofer (Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo), Kathryn Dutton (University of Manchester), Laura Gathagan (State University of New York, Cortland), Charles Insley (University of Manchester), Nicholas Karn (University of Southampton), and Daniel Power (Swansea University)
