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.

      These are just a few guidelines that will make your navigation and participation on the The Lone Medievalist site a little easier:
      1) This website has been created as a place to share ideas and to communicate with your fellow lone medievalists, so any ideas that you post will be shared.  This means that if you are gracious enough to share your syllabi or other information with us, other people will have the right to copy what you post. Essentially, this site is open access.
      2) It should go without saying, but it is obviously expected that people are to be kind to one another on this site.  We are a community, and communities work through differences in an educated forum.  We will not tolerate petty insults or vulgar language.  Any harassment will lead to expulsion from the site. With that being said, we do believe in academic freedom, the right to disagree with others, and the ability to participate in an academic debate without fear of censure.
      3) We do reserve the right to post what we think works for the site, and to edit your work.  (By edit, we mean copy editing and not changing the actual content of your work.  We have editors for the site, and if they catch a spelling error etc. it will be fixed and you will be informed).
      4) Please have fun!  This site was designed as a tool for you to build a community of scholars, to share your work, and to ask questions.  We only hope that we can bring as much community to you as has been our fortune.
