This round table discussion shares the title with an edited collection published in September 2022, and its goal is to present the different perspectives involved in producing a volume that focuses on defining what the margins of medieval society were, on who defined them, and on the consequences of challenging those margins. To do so, the round table discussion will gather the editors as well as authors, reviewers, readers, and publishers to start a conversation on the direction of current studies on medieval transgression.

Participants include Michael Bailey (Iowa State University), Rachel Ernst (Georgia State University, Atlanta), Sean L. Field (University of Vermont), Robert Forke (De Gruyter, Berlin), Delfi Nieto-Isabel (Queen Mary University of London), and Stamatia Noutsou (Independent Scholar, København).
