#kzoo2019 well @WestPoint_USMA were so anxious to talk, they just started on their own at 1328 sharp! Prof Rogers explains his cadets' "mission control center" or laboratory for #Military #History, working 8+ hrs/day on #medieval chronicles' paleography to #data mine 100yrs' war
Specifically looking for artillery information in skirmishes and sieges, to find what on the "laundry list" of sieges leads to #failure vs #success according to the #Database the cadets @WestPoint_USMA built collaboratively for the late #medieval & early #Renaissance. #kzoo2019
A small sample of the +90,000 #data entries - first up is Cadet Liam Kane with his findings on waging war by sieges vs by battles... taking #medieval #Military #History from generalizations to specifically-defined quantities... 47 battles to 134 sieges! #kzoo2019

OK folks a few more thoughts for #MedievalTwitter on that NYT article as #Kzoo2019 approaches. [THREAD] #LitPOC #NotAMonk
1/ I’m glad that the #NotAMonk convos are pointing out problems with the NYT article's opening quote (Richard Utz, prominent white male medievalist, “speaking for” the field as if it were “apolitical” and as if monks were apolitical — in the past or present).
2/ But such convos are still uneven in naming the harms of such framing: this kind of statement is part of a continued pattern of sidelining marginalized medievalists (esp. BIPOC) and casting such ppl/allies as “inappropriately” political or “imposing” on an innocent field.
