This supplement is about the Global Middle Ages, but it is not just for medievalists. Catherine Holmes and Naomi Standen seek to engage with global historians of all periods, and regional specialists from all world regions, whether established academics or students. Arguments presented in this volume were first developed by the members of a network project called ‘Defining the Global Middle Ages’, organized at the Universities of Oxford, Birmingham and Newcastle, which ran between 2012 and 2015.
The supplement is currently accessible online here and will be available in print soon. For more information about the Defining the Global Middle Ages project, please visit http://globalmiddleages.history.ox.ac.uk/.
