Roger Bacon on Translations

I have just uploaded to YouTube the first video of a new series that I have been willing to start since last year, titled “Research Highlights Made Easy”. Its first video is dedicated to a chapter on Roger Bacon’s criticism of medieval translations that I have published in a volume edited by Lydia Schumacher (exact reference is given in the video).

The series will include short videos in which I explain the main points of my recent publications and papers in a way understandable and relatable to a non-specialised audience. As you know, I believe that outreach is a fundamental part of our work although also one of the most neglected, I will do my best to make new videos for all my main papers – at least those who can speak to a different audience which happens to be the “real world” out there.
