Methodological Innovation in Late Medieval Studies
In April 2017, MALMECC held its inaugural workshop at Wadham College. Its aim was to generate a collective experience of sharing and learning through debate and questioning, with a format similar to that of an advanced research seminar. Discussants considered a range of themes centring around ‘Methodological Innovation in Late Medieval Studies’.
“I found [the workshop] extremely interesting and stimulating, and very productive for my own research” – Pablo Gonzalez Martin, DPhil Candidate in History and La Caixa Postgraduate Scholar, Wadham College.
