MemberKeith Ruiter

I am an experienced researcher and educator specializing in early medieval northern Europe. My primary research considers issues of law, normativity, and transgression in Viking and Medieval Scandinavian societies and I am passionate about interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to teaching and researching the medieval world. My postdoctoral research project, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, investigates early Scandinavian customary law and applies methodologies from Indigenous legal studies to better understand and articulate it. I have previously worked as Assistant Professor in the University of Nottingham’s School of English, Teaching Assistant in the University of Aberdeen’s Department of Anglo-Saxon and Celtic Studies, and Guest Researcher at Uppsala University’s Department of History and Stockholm University’s Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies, and am currently Honorary Research Fellow at the Centre for the Study of the Viking Age (University of Nottingham) and the Institute for Northern Studies (University of the Highlands and Islands).

MemberIlse Schweitzer VanDonkelaar

Currently, I am an Acquisitions Editor for Medieval Institute Publications at Kalamazoo, Arc-Humanities Press, and Amsterdam University Press, seeking projects for the following series: Places and Spaces, Medieval to Modern Richard Rawlinson Center Series in Anglo-Saxon Studies Environmental Humanities in Pre-Modern Cultures Medieval Media Cultures Teaching the Middle Ages New Queer Medievalisms

MemberMartin Munke

I am a historian interested in East-Central and Eastern European History. My focus lies on the relations and entanglements of these areas with the German lands, especially in the Age of Enlightenment and the ‘Age of Extremes’. Another focus of my work are digital methods and the concepts of Open Science and Citicen Science in the field of historical research. After several years as research assistant at Chemnitz University of Technology (Institute of European History, Institute of European Studies), I work as head of the divison “Saxonica” (since 2016) and vice head of the department “Manuscripts, Rare Prints, and Saxony” (since 2017) at Saxon State and University Library (SLUB), Dresden.
