Our project is an international collaboration involving eleven universities in Spain, Switzerland, and the United States of America.
The project is an independent scholarly endeavor organized within the Global Middle Ages Project—G-MAP—an ambitious effort by an international collaboration of scholars to see the world whole, c. 500 to 1500 CE, to deliver the stories of lives, objects, and actions in dynamic relationship and change across deep time. G-MAP at the University of Texas at Austin graciously provided seed-funding for the creation of Virtual Plasencia, as well as ongoing intellectual and technical counsel.
Additionally, we have secured collaborative agreements and endorsements from key Spanish institutions, including the Ayuntamiento de Plasencia; Ministerio de Educación, Cultura, y Deportes; and Centro Sefarad Israel.
Dr. Martinez serves as the Project Director (PD) and Dr. Schinazi (Co-PrincipaI Investigator) is the technical leader.
