Dr. Alan Stahl (Curator of Numismatics, Princeton University) presented the annual Medieval Academy of America Lecture at Leeds, speaking on “The Mediterranean Melting Pot: Crosscurrents in Medieval Coinage.” An animated question-and-answer period reflected the lively interest of the audience. A well-attended reception, hosted by the MAA, followed.
The Graduate Student Committee of the MAA sponsored a roundtable discussion at Leeds on “The Wayfaring Scholar: Charting New Routes for Academic Pursuit in the Age of Globalization.” The session was organized by two GSC members: Sebastian Langdell (University of Oxford) and Elizaveta Strakhov (University of Pennsylvania), chair of the GSC. Michelle Urberg (University of Chicago), former chair of the GSC, moderated a lively discussion. A reception immediately followed the panel and was well attended.
The GSC also organized another successful mentorship program at Leeds with eighteen graduate student mentees and eight mentors participating.
