Sponsor:Royal Studies Network

Abstract

This session is part of the Networking Medieval Monarchy strand. Networking Medieval Monarchy V will bring together the themes touched on in the four paper sessions and discuss a new textbook on medieval monarchy, in development with Routledge. The four co-authors will outline the framework of this textbook and reflect on the challenges of creating a textbook which engages with the wide varieties of rulership practised across Europe from 1000-1500. Approaches to teaching medieval monarchy will be explored and feedback from the audience on what they want to see from a textbook on the subject is welcomed.

Participants include Lucinda Dean (University of the Highlands & Islands, Dornoch), Simon Lambe (London South Bank University), Patrik Pastrnak (Univerzita Palackého, Olomouc), and Elena Woodacre (University of Winchester).
