Upcoming Medieval Academy of America Webinars:
“The Past, Present, and Future of Digital Medieval Studies –
A Global Digital Medievalist Symposium”
The Medieval Academy of America is proud to serve as co-host for Part 1 of a three-part worldwide Digital Medievalist symposium, “The Past, Present, and Future of Digital Medieval Studies.” Part 1 will focus on Digital Medieval Studies in the Americas, centering the importance of images and imaging for medievalists working on the western side of the Atlantic. (Monday, May 24, 11 AM – 3:30 PM EDT). This symposium will be followed by “Asia & Oceania: Digital Transformations” (Friday, June 11) and “Africa & Europe: Diving Into Sources” (Monday, June 21).

The Professional Development Committee of the Medieval Academy of America announces the first of a series of online “MedievALList Mixers,” starting in early June.
The goal of these virtual meet-ups is to create a space where the needs of medievalists working off the tenure track can be expressed and acknowledged. Furthermore, this first event will aim to set both an agenda and talking points for future meet-ups, which we hope to schedule on an ongoing basis.
Medievalists of all professional standings are encouraged to attend, as our goal is to redefine our community in terms that are more professionally inclusive, and will therefore require buy-in and support from all our members.
The first event will take place on Tuesday, June 1, at 20:30 EDT/19:30 CDT/18:30 MDT/17:30 PDT via wonder, a zoom-like platform created to facilitate smaller conversations as well as group announcements (for those interested, here is an introduction to the platform). The mixer should last about one hour and will be moderated by Independent Scholar Laura Morreale (past chair of the Ad Hoc committee on Professional Diversity) after which time we will poll members about topics to discuss in future meetings.
Please register using this form; a room link and password will be sent to registered participants one day before the event, and a reminder email one hour before the event begins.
