conference 2021

The 2021-2022 New England Medieval Consortium conference will meet virtually via Zoom on 6 November 2021.

Rather than a conference theme relating to a topic for research, this year’s conference will be an ‘un-conference’ focusing on pedagogy in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic. What did we learn about teaching and student engagement during the pandemic? The institutional hosts are Harvard University and the University of Massachusetts at Boston. Three stipended speakers will lead dialogue sessions and facilitate discussion in breakout rooms. Sessions planned: “Teaching Material Culture,” “Teaching Literature,” and “Teaching History.”

Sessions will be recorded and saved on the Middle Ages for Educators website.


The 2022-2023 New England Medieval Consortium will meet in spring 2023 at the College of the Holy Cross.
