  El medievalismo en un mundo globalizado /  Medieval Studies in a Globalised World
 A cargo de / Edited by Vicent Royo Pérez - Jesús Brufal Sucarrat

This Special Issue proposes some interesting reflections on the role of medievalists in today's globalised world and the place of this field of study in the historical disciplines. Do these scholars have sufficient influence to demand a greater presence in curricula and public funding? Can they have access to solid sources of private funding? The authors of the articles also raise a number of questions about the social function of the medieval scholar in the new dynamics of the 21st century: is it necessary to generate medievalists in universities?, what will their role be in society as a whole?, how to teach Medieval History to young Europeans, many of whom have a different geographical and cultural background, and how can a medievalist contribute to the field of History in the 21st century?  Another axis of the Issue, which is also closely related to the previous ones, is the reflection on the lines of research of recent years that raise other questions: with the  nation-states under discussion in a globalising world, are the great traditional themes still valid? Should new ones be incorporated? Moreover, with the emergence of certain disciplines, is there a danger that technology will take precedence over reflection? The texts also seek to explore possible, future paths that lie ahead in an ever uncertain and changing future. (From the Introduction)
