Abstract

The Leeds International Medieval Congress as well as the Department of Medieval Studies at Central European University (Budapest) celebrate their 25th birthday in 2018. In their activities, both institutions have concentrated on establishing multidisciplinary networks of research into the Middle Ages and communication referring to it on an international basis. They have been successful in these enterprises to promote and stimulate Medieval Studies. This round table discussion will deal with ideas, possibilities, and difficulties in continuing such network endeavours and strengthening the co-operation of researchers and research groups among each other: to offer, at least with regard to comparative study and analysis, new approaches towards the ‘global’ aspects of the Middle Ages.

Participants include Emilia Jamroziak (University of Leeds), Gábor Klaniczay (Central European University, Budapest), Axel E.W. Müller (University of Leeds), and Mária Vargha (Central European University, Budapest).
