The Medieval Globe, a new biannual academic journal, explores the modes of communication, materials of exchange, and myriad interconnections among regions, communities, and individuals in an era central to human history.
The Medieval Globe (TMG) is a peer-reviewed journal to be launched in 2014 with a special issue on the Black Death as a global pandemic. It will be published biannually in both print and digital formats. Thematic issues will alternate with volumes of selected 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.
