Albrecht Classen, editor-in-chief, recently published vol. 35 of "Mediaevistik: Internationale Zeitschrift für interdisziplinäre Mittelalterforschung", August 2023, with 559 pp., containing 10 articles and ca. 150 book reviews.
Albrecht Classen also recently published an article in the Journal of Humanities, Arts and Social Science, which explores three major texts. Literature is not always a medium for pleasantries. Instead, as cultural historians often discover, it is a forum to explore tough issues, such as violence, hatred, but also love, and the search for God.
With this new book publication, "Globalism in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age", pre-modern studies establish that globalism existed already in the Middle Ages and the early modern age. Prof. Classen has edited this hefty tome based on a conference held here at the University of Arizona in April 2022.
