About this group
This community will create a way for scholars to connect with peers and help keep things such as language fluency, translation, and research skills sharp, as well as answer questions that medievalist scholars may have. Discussion about any and all things medieval in nature is also strongly encouraged and warmly welcomed. Note: “Lone Medievalist” has a broad definition, which may include but is not limited to: faculty who are the only medievalist in their departments or on their campuses; faculty at branch campuses; contingent or marginalized faculty; graduate students; alt-ac; independent scholars, etc. The purpose of The Lone Medievalist Online website is to cultivate a community where lone medievalists can make connections, share and gather ideas, and engage in the larger collective that is Medieval Studies. It will be a space for conversation, requests for assistance, introductions, entertainment, and education. By creating this site, we hope to introduce and include more people into an intricate web comprised of like-minded educators and enthusiasts.
