April 18, 2023, 10:30 AM – noon EDT: The Graduate Student Committee presents a Community Outreach Workshop. The GSC has in recent years emphasized both a focus on building a global community of graduate students studying the Middle Ages and on developing public-facing content about the medieval period for specialists and non-specialists alike. In this workshop, we seek to bring these two nodes together. How can we take medieval studies outside of the university classroom (and the home office) and into the wider community? How do we identify interested communities? What kinds of projects are effective for communicating information about the Middle Ages responsibly? In this workshop, the GSC seeks to assist participants in creating opportunities for community engagement by bringing together a panel of medievalists who have created such projects. More information coming soon!
