We are pleased to share a new collaborative project from Medieval Studies faculty: a collection of bibliographies across topic areas within medieval studies for educators and students looking to expand their view of the global medieval world.

Asia in the Global Medieval World (from Michelle C. Wang)
Iberian, Hispanic, Lusophone, and Iberoamerican Sources (from Ross Karlan)

This website and set of podcasts was the collective final project for “Premodern Worlds: A History Through Objects,” taught by Professor Sarah McNamer at Georgetown University in the fall of 2019. The podcasts all look at relics from the medieval world — from Byzantine jewelry to Chinese Buddhist altarpieces.
GU Library Research Guides
Our colleagues Laura Morreale, Merle Eisenberg, and Sara McDougall, with support from the Haskins Society, have just launched a new website, “Middle Ages for Educators,” to aid with digital learning and education during the challenges posed by COVID-19. This is a brilliant resource for educators, students, and all interested in medieval studies.
Created in collaboration between Humanities DC and Catholic University of America, Medieval DC is a resource guide to help locate places in the DC metro area to learn about the middle ages. The website includes materials and and resources for K-12 teachers for class discussion.
“The Global Medieval Sourcebook” (GMS) is a free, open access, and open source teaching and research tool. It offers a flexible online display for the parallel viewing of medieval texts in their original language, in new English translations, and in their digitized manuscript form.” (Global Medieval Sourcebook)
This international collaboration of medievalists provides resources for students and instructors spanning medieval Europe, Asia, North America, and Sub-Saharan Africa. A handy map organizes featured projects by region.
