This guide was developed from materials discussed at the 2021 International Congress on Medieval Studies session 391: Teaching the Middle Ages with Diversity and Inclusion organized by Jonathan F. Correa-Reyes and Jacob W. Doss. The recommendations come from a chat transcript of participant suggestions for resources to accurately represent the diversity of the Middle Ages in undergraduate courses. We welcome additional recommendations to expand and update this guide.
This guide attempts to describe these resources in the words of their creators and focuses whenever possible on open educational resources (OER) which can be accessed at no cost to help overcome economic barriers to education and knowledge. In the case of texts which are not available publicly, links to the publisher's website are included when possible.
