We invite the submission of unpublished, original research papers to be read at the third edition of Research in Medieval Studies.
The coming RiMS meeting takes stock of the state-formation in medieval Europe debate and its changing scholarly conceptions, in order to question diplomacy as one of its building blocks. Having in the background the transformation and gradual definition of geo-politicial borders and sovereignties in Europe, two key questions arise: How demanding were external affairs on political communities and governments as they became more structured? In turn, how did the growing need for more comprehensive diplomacy impact on the development of such structures?
The call for papers is open to any scholar working on medieval Europe, particularly those who have produced, or potentially will produce, ground-breaking research.
Proposals may cover longer-term examinations or focus more narrowly on a period and/or setting. Papers will be committed to double-blind peer review and a selection will be published by the Coimbra University Press both in print and as an open-access, database indexed e-monograph.
Researchers are invited to send a 500-word proposal and an up to two-page curriculum vitæ by 15 April 2022 to email@example.com.
