Its aim is to exchange new ideas and perspectives with young and established scholars from all medieval disciplines. Sessions will take place every two months and are intended to provide an international and interdisciplinary forum where different topics and methodological approaches can be presented and discussed.

Our speakers begin with a 10-minute keynote to present their current or recently completed research, followed by a 10-minute commentary from an invited expert. This will be the basis for the subsequent 40-minute discussion with the online audience.
