We received a tweet last week from a scholar asking whether there was a platform that collated all the latest call for papers, upcoming events etc in Medieval Studies - and this got us thinking. There aren't many places out there that have all this kind of information in one place.
We decided that we could turn our forum into a space where people could do exactly this - post and share events all in one place. These posts can be viewed by anyone - you don't need a social media account or to be a member of the forum. To post you will need to become a member, but that's pretty easy.
We've created two new sections on our forum - a notice board for all things Medieval Studies and another for Early Modern Studies. We would love for you to share this with your scholarly community and help spread the word that we want MEMSLib's forum space to become the place to find out about call for papers, seminars, and more.
