We are excited to inaugurate here a new, semi-annual feature of the journal: an online, open-access Forum, to be directed and edited by Holly Crocker, and to feature short responses, as well as debate and dialogue, relative to essays, reviews, and topics featured in regular issues of postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural studies. It is hoped that the Forum will serve as a vibrant space for public, open, and spirited conversations relative to the content published in postmedieval and to pressing issues and questions circulating in medieval and early modern studies more broadly.

August 2015 – JUST PUBLISHED: Forum V: PUBLIC MIDDLE AGES. Please visit the Forum’s homepage to browse content. A centralised comments function is provided, to further encourage dialogue between readers.
