One week later - updates & news

The MEMSlib team wanted to say a massive thank you for all the great feedback we have received since the launch of the website. This has certainly been a rollercoaster week and it's fantastic to see that MEMSlib is becoming a useful resource for scholars around the world. 

We are very grateful for all the feedback and suggestions that we have received so far. This week has already seen some exciting changes to the resource pages, and there will be much more to follow, but if you'd like to see anything else please do get in touch!


Updates to MEMSlib

Early Medieval Studies

We are delighted to announce a brand new resource page to MEMSlib - Early Medieval Studies! This new page has been compiled and organised by the wonderful Dr Edward Roberts who is Lecturer in Early Medieval History and Director of Graduate Studies at MEMS, University of Kent. You can see the new resource page here.

Medieval Literature Resources

With thanks to Dr Ryan Perry (University of Kent) for some brilliant suggestions, we've added plenty of new resources to our Medieval Literature page, including the exciting Book of Margery Kempe project from the British Library and Southeastern Univerisity. We've also added a new Bibliography section to the page, with links to critical reading lists including Jonathan Hsy and Julie Orlemanski's "Race and Medieval Studies: A partial bibliography".

Medieval Art History Resources

Our History of Art page now includes more resources related to illuminated manuscripts, image databases and archives, and stained glass. In addition, a big shout-out to Dr Beate Fricke at University of Bern's Institute for Art History, who has created an amazing spreadsheet showing which Journals are Open Access - a link to this can be found on our History of Art resource page. 

Early Modern Drama

Our Early Modern Drama and History pages are growing as well! Since being launched, the editors have received a number of suggestions for fantastic additional resources from Professor Pascale Aebischer (Exeter) and Dr Daniel Starza Smith (King's College London). A special shout-out goes to the students and staff of the MA in Early Modern Literature: Text & Transmission at KCL, for the resources they shared through Dr Smith. 


Upcoming Events of interest

We've been keeping an eye out for online seminars, podcast releases and upcoming conferences to further your research! We're looking forward to the inaugural webinar from the Mysticism and Lived Experience Network (13th-17th July); register here for papers exploring mysticism across medieval and early modern Europe.

And if that's too long to wait, why not join the International Hoccleve Society's "Hoccleve at Home" seminar on the 9th July, led by Dr Jenni Nuttall.

If you're keen to get started on some reading, we've just added the Society's full-text resource list to our Literature page!


If you know of any resources that you think belongs on MEMSlib, please do get in touch. Our team will go through and review the suggestion.
