CARMEN: The Worldwide Medieval Network – (Virtual) Annual General Meeting 2020

The annual CARMEN open meeting brings together scholars and professionals from across the world in participatory and interactive formats: project development workshops; training and networking; the ‘Forum’ showcase for projects, institutions and research centres; and, just as importantly, opportunities for socializing.

This year’s annual meeting, originally planned to take place in Dublin at Trinity College on 1-2 September 2020, will do all of these things; due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however, it will do them online! We are introducing a series of virtual-friendly modifications to the CARMEN formats you are familiar with (or want to familiarize yourself with), and will be welcoming your input on how we can improve this format for a possible hybrid future, enabling people to participate in CARMEN’s international networks in new ways.

The CARMEN annual meeting always has a thematic strand: this year’s is Environment. A Plenary Round Table will take place during the meeting and will be accompanied on Twitter. We now invite proposals for the workshops, which will take place on 1 and 2 September between 2 and 4 pm GMT +1 in webinar format. The organiser of each workshop will be responsible for online hosting, and will provide a link together with a short description; advance registration (by 31 July 2020) will be necessary.
