I am pleased to announce that Oxford medievalists now have online access to The Mediaeval Journal (ISSN p: 2033-5385; e: 2033-5393), 1, 2011- to current. Access is via SOLO or OU eJournals.
“The Mediaeval Journal is the first European-based cross-disciplinary and multinational journal of Medieval Studies to be published in the lingua franca of English. It is also the first journal to address the two most exciting and productive trends in current Mediaeval Studies: the turn towards multinational work and towards cross-disciplinarity.
In an increasingly multinational academic world of collaboration and intellectual exchange, scholars all over Europe and beyond are ever more frequently realizing that important research is emerging from outside their national academies. The Mediaeval Journal recognizes the rich opportunities that this movement represents. Moreover, in fulfilling its cross-disciplinary remit, The Mediaeval Journal publishes articles mixing approaches from traditional subjects with areas and perspectives which are currently under-explored.
Aiming to offer wide disciplinary coverage in each issue, it welcomes submissions from specialists in all areas of Mediaeval Studies, whether they come from traditional disciplines like Art History, History, Archaeology, Theology, Languages/Literatures, and English, or from less-exposed fields such as Islamic Studies, Jewish Studies, Manuscript Studies, Mediaevalism, Material Culture, History of Medicine and Science, History of Ideas, Queer Studies, Postcolonial Studies, and Musicology, and others.” Institute of Mediaeval Studies, University of St Andrews.
The General Editors are Margaret Connolly, Ian Johnson and James Palmer. Oxford’s own Prof. Vincent Gillespie is also on the editorial board (pdf) together with many eminent medievalists.
