    In line with academic institutions and organizations worldwide, our first priority has been to keep all our colleagues as safe as possible.  To that end, sadly, we made an early decision to cancel our traditional Oct/Nov conference.

    Since then, however, we have participated like so many in numerous courses and a growing number of virtual conferences via Zoom and similar platforms.  Gratefully harnessing the opportunities afforded by the Web, the Haskins Society has continued its mission of furthering research and aiding the careers of young scholars.

    Summer Workshop: Perspectives on Teaching the Middle Ages

    On Thursday, 23 July, the Society hosted a 2-panel webinar on topics that members have expressed interest in:

    • Medieval Contexts/Contemporary Problems: A Panel on Teaching Race, Violence, Disease, and Protest in Medieval Courses
    • Teaching the Crusades Virtually

    These sessions were recorded and will soon be available here on the website.

    2020 (virtual) Conference: 31 October/1 November

    Planning for the 2020 Annual Conference is now underway, and more detailed announcements will soon follow.  In the meantime, the Society has issued its Call for Papers, with a 25 August deadline for those proposals.

    Popular demand has been asking that more of Morillo's cartoons be put back in circulation. Decrepit old disk drives have been cracked open by IT magic, and lo, we've doubled the number of offenses against good taste that make Morillo gleeful.  Please enjoy these flashbacks to the Anglo-Norman Anonymous.

    The Haskins Society has learned--with sadness for ourselves and pleasure for him--that Prof. Richard Abels (who needs no introduction in these circles!) plans to retire at the end of the 2016-17 academic year.  The US Naval Academy has begun advertising the post, and Dr. Abels asked that we help the effort by posting the announcement here as well.

    From the ad: "The History Department at the United States Naval Academy is seeking applicants to fill tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor level in Medieval and Early Modern European History beginning August 2017. USNA is a service academy and top-tier liberal arts college with a demonstrated commitment to excellence in faculty teaching and research.

    "Successful candidates will be expected to teach the first half of the Naval Academy’s core comparative civilization sequences, as well as upper level courses in their areas of specialty. The teaching load is 3-3 with small section sizes and two to three preps a year."

    The full advertisement, including minimum requirements and the steps for how to apply are at the USNA's website:

    The Medieval Academy of America has announced that Nicholas Paul's first book, To Follow in their Footsteps: The Crusades and Family Memory in the High Middle Ages is one of the 2016 winners of the John Nicholas Brown Prize.  In selecting Paul's work, the MAA described the study as offering "an original investigation into collective memory in the first crusading century.  Paul draws upon widely-ranging sources (texts and material objects) in family history, anthropology, literary theory and sociology to illuminate the historical context and dynastic narratives of the Crusades.  His conclusion about the failure of Henry II of England and Alfonso II of Aragon 'to take the cross' brings the study to a well-defined and compelling conclusion."

    The MAA's website notes that "The John Nicholas Brown Prize, established by the Medieval Academy of America in 1978, is awarded annually for a first book or monograph on a medieval subject judged by the selection committee to be of outstanding quality."

    The Haskins Society salutes Nicholas Paul's achievement! It mirrors his outstanding contributions to the society's council and participation in the annual conference.
