Medieval Studies in the Digital Age. Workshop

a forum for medievalists from various disciplines who are interested in the digital humanities

November 2014 to May 2015 at the University of Leeds

Our aim is to critically discuss the role of digital technologies in the field of medieval studies as well as providing insights into current practices and ways of using digital tools in scholarship through a series of seminars and workshops. The seminar and workshop series is intended to encourage cross-disciplinary exchange among scholars who currently use or are interested in using technological tools and techniques for their research.

All events are free of charge and everyone is welcome.

Medieval Studies in the Digital Age is organised by N. Kıvılcım Yavuz, Victoria Cooper, and Elizabeth Stainforth and is generously supported by the Institute for Medieval Studies, the School of History, the Leeds University Library Special Collections, and the LEAP Researcher Training Hub.
