Statement of Solidarity

As an international organization dedicated to studying the reception of medieval culture in postmedieval times, we have been observing with increasing concern the appropriation of medieval imagery, objects, and tropes by white supremacists and nationalists. Now, as we witness the recent targeted online harassment of fellow medievalist and activist Dorothy Kim, we declare our collective resolve to counteract racism and white supremacism in all its forms and to defend the rights of contingent and untenured faculty, especially those from marginalized populations.
