Middle Ages for Educators
Project Description

Designed for teachers, students, and members of the broader public who want to learn about Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages (c. 300-1500 C.E.), this website provides resources for both teaching and research, including:

  • short videos by world-renowned experts accompanied by discussion questions and primary source materials

  • introductions to medieval digital projects

  • workshops on how to use digital tools to study the medieval past

  • curated links to associated websites with medieval content, images, digitized manuscripts, or other medieval materials.

Through the website, it is possible to access resources on COVID-19 and pandemics, placing our times in a more broad historical context.

Co-founder of the website are: Sara McDougall, associate professor of history at John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City University of New York and graduate faculty member in French, History, Biography & Memoir, and Medieval Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center; and Laura Morreale, cultural historian of the thirteenth- and fourteenth-century Italian peninsula.
