The Medieval Globe Books - ARC

The Medieval Globe (TMG) is a peer-reviewed journal launched in November 2014 with a special issue on the Black Death as a global pandemic. It explores the modes of communication, materials of exchange, and myriad interconnections among regions, communities, and individuals in an era central to human history. TMG promotes scholarship in three related areas of study:

  • the direct and indirect means by which peoples, goods, and ideas came into contact
  • the deep roots of global developments
  • the ways in which perceptions of the medieval past have been (and are) constructed around the world.

The Medieval Globe is published biannually, in both print and digital formats. Thematic issues usually alternate with miscellanies of select articles submitted for consideration on a rolling basis. Future thematic issues might address such topics as: pilgrimage, diasporas, race and racializing technologies, maritime cultures and ports-of-call, piracy and crime, knowledge networks, markets and consumerism, entertainment, spoils and spolia, global localities, comparative cosmographies, sites of translation and acculturation, slavery and social mobility.

TMG‘s Editorial Board is currently seeking submissions. It encourages innovative and collaborative work in a variety of academic genres:

  • Full-length articles
  • Scholarly dialogues
  • Multi-authored discussions
  • Review essays
  • Editions or translations of source materials
