Abstract

The round table discussion ‘Materialities of Medieval Studies’ shall have the materiality of our field of expertise at the core of the discussion, i.e. the availability and accessibility of sources, remains, theories, networks, research, and publications for tenured, non-tenured, and independent scholars as well as the public, the interaction with such materialities and the – what is often called – translation and interpretation work surrounding such materialities when engaging with them and making them accessible to a wider audience.

Participants include Mateusz Fafinski (Freie Universität Berlin), James Michael Harland (Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen), Dolly Jørgensen (Universitetet i Stavanger), Johannes Waldschütz (Stadtmuseum und Archiv, Stockach), and Katherine Weikert (University of Winchester).
