Adaptations & Events : COVID-19

July 27, 2020 2:27 PM | Steven Isaac (Administrator)

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.
