Middle Ages Network
- Jelle Haemers | Leuven University, Belgium
- Jesús Ángel Solorzano Telechea | University of Cantabria, Spain
In this network, we welcome sessions that specifically address this period, but it is of course possible to cross the precise chronological boundaries. Likewise, it is possible to submit a session that would fit within another network, and thus overlap with the theme of another network (such as migration, economic history, labour, and so on).
It goes without saying that we prefer papers that study the social background of a given theme, and thus wish to answer the following questions: who is responsible for a studied evolution? Why is a study of the social aspect important to explain the history of a particular phenomenon? How has the social background of a person or movement influenced medieval history? And so on. We also welcome papers highlighting the impact of social theory (sociology, political science, anthropology...) on the study of the Middle Ages.
