This is an invitation for participants in a round-table discussion on the topic of “Teaching a Diverse and Inclusive Middle Ages,” at the 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI, May 11-14, 2017. I am looking for anyone with experienceteaching to and about diversity and inclusivity in courses on premodern topics. This panel discussion will address questions about how we can best serve all of our students in the classroom by responsibly including topics of study related to diverse populations in the premodern world. We will also ask how best to attract students from diverse backgrounds into courses on medieval topics, which have much to say on contemporary debates about marginalized groups and images of "the other." 

If you are interested in participating, please submit a short (200-word) proposal to me at, detailing in brief how you could contribute to this panel discussion.
