Event description
"Teaching the Middle Ages: Pandemic Lessons and Post-Pandemic Pedagogy", the 48th annual New England Medieval Conference

About this event

The 2021 meeting of the New England Medieval Consortium will focus on lessons learned during what might be called "the long 2020", a period marked by extraordinary disruptions and difficulties but also by extraordinary resilience and creativity on the part of teachers and students of Medieval Studies. Our daylong program will feature three conversations on teaching literature, material culture, and history in the Age of COVID, as well as a roundtable discussion on how those experiences might continue to shape our teaching in the years ahead. Due to the continuing challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's NEMC will take place virtually on the Zoom meeting platform. Registration is free and open to the public.
