The Medieval Studies Book Club, a gathering of mostly graduate students from several departments, aims to offer books and develop discussions that bring us together across the various subfields of Medieval Studies in an effort to identify how the (often unfamiliar) perspectives, questions, and methodologies of our colleagues from diverse disciplines can expand and inspire our own thinking and research. To do this, we will be soliciting input across all fields, where we will actively develop cross-discipline connections that bring our community closer together and inspire all of our work with new perspectives and approaches.
The logistics of Book Club will also operate differently this year. For the fall semester (and potentially spring as well), all gatherings will take place on Zoom, and books will be mailed directly to participants at their chosen address. Budget and logistics permitting (shipping costs and times, etc.), we welcome the participation of colleagues based anywhere in the US or abroad. Please note that, per book club tradition, requesting a copy of the book constitutes a commitment to participate in the group discussion. Please make sure you can attend the session before requesting a book.
If you would like to participate in the sessions, please send us a note with your name and the mailing address to which you would like your copy of the book to be shipped.
