Before the research visit, Dr. Bauer-Zetzmann and Dr. Booth had already independently collected data on classical references and classical learning in Medieval Latin pilgrimage accounts. Therefore, their first goal during the visit was to discuss the next steps for analysing the data. "This will become a joint publication, a journal article which will serve to investigate the use of classical texts and authors within Latin travel accounts of the late to high middle ages." says Dr. Bauer-Zetzmann.
The BritInn-Fellowship also served to enhance the academic environment of the department, through the discussions that were held at various moments during the week, but also through Dr. Bauer-Zetzmann’s guest talk on the public of historiography. The guest lecture was held in hybrid format and well-attended by staff and students not only from Manchester Metropolitan University, but also from the University of Manchester and an audience from around the world.
