Welcome to Marginalia, the Journal of the Medieval Reading Group at the University of Cambridge
Marginalia is an online, peer-reviewed journal for medievalists, which aims to fill a gap in the publishing world by creating a vehicle for graduate publication. It sprang out of, and continues to be closely associated with, the Cambridge-based Medieval Reading Group, which was formed by Katie Walter in Easter term 2004. The aim of the reading group was to build community amongst graduate medievalists, and foster interdisciplinary approaches. Three further figures, Ingrid Abreu Scherer, Mary Flannery, and Anke Timmermann, became involved in this endeavour, and decided to open up this community to an international network using the wonders of the worldwide web. The first issue of the journal came out in 2005, and since then two issues have been released each year: one yearbook issue, showcasing some of the best work from the Cambridge MPhil in Medieval Literature; and a themed issue which invites submissions from graduate students in any discipline, working on the medieval period.
