Why Study the Middle Ages?
Kisha G. Tracy
Ark Humanities Press
Part of an incomplete series from the past, this book explores new trends in medieval studies and how they relate to interdisciplinary studies in the humanities, social sciences, and other aspects of STEM. Checking it up. Case studies in the book examine how medievalists are currently studying topics such as domestic abuse and disability.
When I talk to medievalists, I often hear them say that the study of the Middle Ages is fundamentally interdisciplinary. Far from bragging (though it may be in some cases), it’s the truth on the ground. Medieval literary scholars, unlike scholars of other periods, consider almost all written texts, regardless of genre, to be their scope. Art historians must have access to disciplines such as religion, literature, and science. Studies in disability studies include science, medicine, literature, sociology, linguistics, and archeology. To complete our work, a medievalist should at least be interdisciplinary, working in different disciplines, perhaps interdisciplinary, and linking those disciplines.
