The mission of NetMAR is to contribute to and strengthen the field of Medieval Studies by bringing together under one lens visual arts, literature, and performance art.
To do so, NetMAR has planned various different scientific activities that bring new benefits to scholarship and society more broadly, including but not limited to: staff exchanges, expert visits, webinars, workshops and conferences, a summer school, and several dissemination and outreach activities.
The members of the network develop and publish high-impact publications, establish an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed and open access scholarly journal, and create a critical mass of highly qualified young scholars of all genders.
The knowledge transfer, training and exchange of best practices that NetMAR facilitates between the three partnering institutions goes a long way towards filling networking gaps and deficiencies that UCY may have comparatively to its advanced partners in the field of medieval studies.
Actively and directly, NetMAR also promotes the integration of Early-Stage Researchers into its activities and the training of emerging scholars in research management and grant writing skills.
