Imagen We are announcing the “Tribune”, a free speech space for medievalism

Medievalitis keeps expanding as it receives more news and visits. Our aim is to help Mediaevalism grow in the Iberian Peninsula and to do so we are building a new section: an opinion column or blog where scholars and researchers will be able to publish their concerns or comment the latests news.

People interested won’t need to compromise or commit to it, as these are not scientific articles. The Tribune is about expressing yourself and let your voice travel beyond your faculty. Do you want to know more?

What kind of content is allowed?

We wouldn’t like to limit the topics. However, we may sum them up in these two points:

  1. Middle Ages. Complaints or proposals on the conservation of medieval objects, considerations on news that affect our knowledge of the Middle Ages (discoveries or new theories) or scientific dissemination (as some wonderful webs do).
  2. Academy and research world. Thoughts on the current state of the university, specific problems in the research field, opinions on training programs, criticisms of new publications or exhibitions, etc.
We will not admit advertising, news that already have another space in medievalitis.com, or very short entries. Nor would we accommodate content protected by copyright or plagiarism.

Who can post?

Everyone.

How do I publish?

First of all, you should send us an email to [email protected]. Then we will explain you what to do. But don’t worry, the process will be easy and quick.

Is there a minimum number of posts? Should I arrange my publications previously?

No. You can send your texts whenever you want and the amount you prefer.

What languages and formats are permitted?

Admitimos cualquier idioma, aunque recomendamos que escribas en alguna lengua peninsular, romance o inglés. En algunos casos es posible que solicitemos la traducción de algún fragmento para facilitar la revisión.

No hay limitación de formato, siempre y cuando tu entrada no sea un comentario breve y poco desarrollado.

I have a blog, but I’m interested.
