Colloque – The Future of Medieval France | UCLA Center for Early Global Studies Conference

“The Future of Medieval France” is an international conference on the past, present, and future of medieval studies in Europe presented in honor of John W. Baldwin. Organized by Professor Meredith Cohen (Art History, UCLA) and Professor Zrinka Stahuljak (CMRS-CEGS Director, UCLA). 

Bringing together scholars of medieval France from the Anglophone and Francophone worlds, this conference honors the legacy of John W. Baldwin who bridged the two and looks into the future of medieval France in the global context. What does it mean to study medieval France today, when academic research and funding trends increasingly seem to decenter France? While this conference focuses on France, the reflection is relevant for all of Europe. Why and how, then, should we study medieval France and Europe? How can we reform or decolonize the medieval European fields from within while remaining true to the time period, its geographies, mentalities, and connectivities?

The conference will be held on Feb. 23 and 24. Please join us remotely via ZOOM:
