Statement of commitment, from some medievalists at the University of Chicago
We, the undersigned, are committed to the project of teaching and studying the Middle Ages critically in an age of ascendant white supremacism, as called for by Professor Dorothy Kim, the Medievalists of Color, and many others. We are also committed to making medieval studies a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable field.
Signed, (in alphabetical order)
