On the outset of the of the 21st century, cross-disciplinary studies on the Middle Ages seem to be in need of a careful reconsideration of their nature, scope and aims. This is especially so after the series of “turns” undergone by historiography in the last four decades. Despite their differences, philosophy, history, philology, literary studies and art, are also bound through their work on texts; and all are currently faced with both methodological and substantive issues raised by important shifts in contemporary society.

This congress is devoted to a global assessment of the current state of affairs in medieval studies, but also the upcoming challenges.
