Matthew Gabriele, AHA member and professor of medieval history at Virginia Tech, penned an op-ed in Forbes urging historians to be aware of the role they play in the political appropriation of traditional medieval symbols and iconography. “Marginalizing the voices of scholars asking questions about the state of the field, about what we study and how we study it, is not only ignoring the history of Medieval Studies but further distancing us from the past we’re all so interested in,” Gabriele concludes.
