Race and the Middle Ages
Keynote Speaker : Geraldine Heng, The University of Texas at Austin
“The Politics of Race in the European Middle Ages”
With the world-wide resurgence of anti-racist activism following the killing of George Floyd, we as medievalists feel compelled to reexamine notions of race in the pre-modern period. Can speaking of “race” in the Middle Ages help us today?
How was race conceived in the Middle Ages? Did race already dictate the lives of men and women in medieval Europe? To what extent did race and religion overlap in the Middle Ages? We invite medievalists of all disciplines and specializations to explore these and other questions relating to the topic of race.
