ANZAMEMS DEVELOPMENT SCHEME (ADS) 2021

Dear ANZAMEMS ECRs and HDR Students,

I’m writing to provide an update on the ANZAMEMS DEVELOPMENT SCHEME (ADS), our forthcoming workshop series for HDR students and ECRs. Since our last communication with the ANZAMEMS membership, we have finalised the seminar schedule and topics (see below). We have 27 members enrolled in the workshops, and we are very much looking forward to meeting them. For any HDRs and ECRs who missed the first call, we invite them to apply to join the scheme.

Should you wish to apply to join this seminar series, please email Clare Monagle clare.monagle@mq.edu.au by October 24th to register your interest, supplying the information below. Participation is only open to ANZAMEMS members.

CARMEN: The Worldwide Medieval Network – (Virtual) Annual General Meeting 2021

CARMEN: The Worldwide Medieval Network – (Virtual) Annual General Meeting 2021

“The Middle Ages in the Americas”

The annual CARMEN open meeting brings together scholars and professionals from across the world in participatory and interactive formats, including talks by leading scholars, paper sessions, project development workshops, and our annual ‘Forum’ showcasing projects, institutions and research centers. This year’s meeting will take place on 3-5 September 2021, co-sponsored by the Medieval Academy of America and Harvard University’s Committee on Medieval Studies. The theme for this year’s CARMEN meeting, “The Middle Ages in the Americas”, highlights our North American venue, and is meant to encourage scholarly conversation on the rich history of Medieval Studies in the Western hemisphere, as well as the myriad ways in which “the medieval” has been portrayed and appropriated within the art, architecture, literature, and popular culture of the Americas.

Due to the continuing challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, we will not be able to gather in Boston as originally planned. Instead, our meeting will take place virtually, featuring a combination of synchronous lectures, sessions, and workshops that will take place from 1000 to 1500 EDT on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In addition to keynote talks by Professor Laura Cleaver (School of Advanced Studies, University of London) and Professor Cord Whitaker (Wellesley College) and a series of talks on this year’s theme, the 2021 CARMEN meeting also will feature presentations of new and early-stage project proposals submitted for this year’s CARMEN Project Prize, the winner of which will be announced at the meeting’s conclusion.

“The Middle Ages in the Americas”, the 2021 Annual Meeting of CARMEN, is free and open to the public. To register for the meeting, which will be hosted on the Eventbrite meeting platform from 3 September to 5 September 2021, please click here.
