CARMEN Annual Meeting in Essen, 9-11 September 2016:
Notice for Students
As you prepare for what we hope are productive and happy careers in medieval studies, we’d like to invite you to participate in an international organization for the promotion of our discipline. CARMEN, as stated on its website, is a worldwide network of medievalists, its name being an acronym for the ‘Co-operative for the Advancement of Research through a Medieval European Network.’ It links a number of research institutions, universities, interest groups, and individuals with common scholarly interest in the study of the Middle Ages, including the Medieval Academy of America. While based in Europe, it reaches out to all continents to create an open and truly international platform of co-operation in the field of medieval research and teaching. CARMEN has an annual meeting in the fall, the next one being in Essen, Germany, 9-11 September 2016, and scholars and administrators from all over the world will meet to exchange ideas and develop projects in medieval studies. If you’re interested in attending the meeting or learning more about CARMEN, please get in touch with CARMEN’s Early Career liaison, Robert Bjork.
