This blog supports the publication of Europe’s Long Twelfth Century: Order, Anxiety and Adaptation, 1095-1229. Intended for interested general readers, advanced undergraduates, and classroom use, the book seeks to provide (as the preface says) “a general survey of the twelfth century that could articulate what this period has meant and continues to mean to medievalists.” In case anyone interested in the book’s content cares to follow continuing developments in the field, and places where the concerns of twelfth-century Europeans meet those of twenty-first century global citizens, I will periodically update the blog with further thoughts, links, and reflections on current scholarship. Current issues related to academia and medieval studies will presumably come up from time to time.
Having never maintained a blog before, I will just have to see how it goes.
