Did you know that JRR Tolkien voted to make sure that Dorothy Whitelock—one of the best medievalists of her generation—didn’t inherit his Oxford job and that the job went to a much-less-qualified man instead? (from Jana Schulman’s “An Anglo-Saxonist” p. 555)

The International Society of Anglo-Saxonists needs to change its name to acknowledge that the term Anglo-Saxon is widely used in racist rhetoric. Be accountable and acknowledge that. Changing the name doesn't make you any less of a scholar.

For those not plugged into , a note that medieval studies is absolutely on 🔥right now in the midst of exposing 1) the whiteness of our discipline & 2) the white supremacist foundations of Early Medieval Studies. Real pressure to dismantle the term "Anglo-Saxon."

It's the vigil of the Holy Cross! My fave True Cross reliquary is the c980s Limburg staurotheke. It has 10 enamel loculi for other Passion relics once kept in the Bucoleon, so it's our 1st material witness to the arrival of the Crown of Thorns in Constantinople 👑

Thread: I notice that white people who’ve spoken up re: the ISAS racism in the last few days are getting a lot of cookies (they’re “so brave”, etc), but there’s been few references to Prof. Miyashiro ( ) who started this conversation over two years ago.

Deadline at the end of this week, let's talk about skin as boundary between/beyond animal, human and object, how thinking about skin queers and crips manuscript studies, and whether skin is a screen, curtain, costume or a locus for essential identities.

Morning ISAS, Since I was asked about points I want addressed in an email from someone representing you I will list them here: 1) Write and include a policy on harassment. Be firm with it and quit protecting predators. You owe victims an apology. 1/10

Jesus, I’m away from twitter for a few days whilst knee-deep in book writing + what do I return to? Only the implosion of my bloody discipline . This has certainly been an eye opener but the criticisms levied against some integrious academics/friends is repugnant.

OK so I have missed out on an important academic microculture. ! I am not a French historian but I do have great shoes. Maybe I should start a tag! I know some of have beautifully furnished feet!

While explaining the ISAS 🔥 to a non-medievalist, he interrupted, “Why would a woman of color be interested in Anglo-Saxon history?” And I got to use his own question as an example of why the term has got to go.

With the Medievalists of Color being all the buzz on , now seems a good time to remind that we have four (4) sessions at ICMS 2020 for which we are still seeking paper proposals. The CFPs are here: [1/2]

As an early-career (really early) medievalist, I don't often comment on happenings as I don't feel I've earned it yet. As a queer medievalist of color, I often feel extra uncertain about giving comment. So I'll just lend a little more visibility to this thread.

You may not realize it, but there is some serious teamwork going on right now in my notifications. For every racist nonsensical tweet, there is an expert there to set the record straight. This is what we should be doing . . . and we are doing it.

Both pleased and a bit apprehensive to announce that I will be writing a biography of Elizabeth Woodville for the Queens of England series. I want to know the BEST academic biographies you've read. Any period, any location.
