CARMEN (Co-operative for the Advancement of Research through a Medieval European Network) is a research consortium of universities, research centers, academic associations, and individuals dedicated to the study of the Middle Ages (ca. 400-1500 CE). As its name suggests, CARMEN originally was conceived as a European enterprise; today, however, it is a global initiative, with collaborators from Europe, North America, East Asia, Australasia and Latin America. CARMEN encourages and promotes major scholarly projects in Medieval Studies, advocates for medieval and humanistic research funding and support, disseminates information, collaborates with national associations and major conferences, and organizes an annual meeting. Its website is hosted by Arc Humanities Press, CARMEN’s publishing arm. To learn more about CARMEN’s members and activities, use the navigation bar above (under «CARMEN»), or follow us on Twitter.
