This workshop is devoted to a parallel exploration of medieval and modern ideas and practices connected to change. For example, for the medieval period ideas about free will, contingency, time, divine agency, futurity of social action may all come into play. How far is it possible to extend this range of concepts? Are concepts from modern "Futures- thinking" relevant to the study of the medieval past (such concepts might include, for example, ideas about risk; strategic planning; sustainability; resilience; systems thinking; complex global issues).
