In this presentation the superb scholars Dr. Sturtevant and Dr. Kaufman guide us into a ferocious and heatedly discussed topic and that is the concept of "race and racism in the medieval world."
Was Medieval Europe purely a "white space?"
Did racism exist in the Middle Ages?
Are there examples of racial prejudice in Medieval literature? Are people of color seen in medieval writings?
Did skin color and religion such share a connection? Are people of color seen in medieval Christianity?
From discussing Black Saints and travel in the Middle Ages and the interconnectedness of the Medieval world we see a complicated history representing complicated societies, peoples and interactions.
