Abstract

This drop-in workshop session is sponsored by CARMEN: The Worldwide Medieval Network, and reflects CARMEN’s distinctive mission as an international forum for scholars at all levels to exchange ideas, build partnerships, and develop collaborative research. The session presents an opportunity to engage with key sources, theories, and approaches relating to the special thematic strand of this year’s IMC: Materialities. Materials for discussion have been selected from the collective input of the medievalist community on Twitter, resulting in a larger shareable bibliography as well as a curated selection of readings. A short reading pack is downloadable before the conference from the CARMEN website (www.carmen-medieval.net/), or just come along and pick up a hand-out at the session (no pre-reading is necessary). Scholars from any discipline are warmly invited to join this informal discussion.
