Networks and Neighbours is a refereed and peer-reviewed open-access, online journal concerned with varying types of inter-connectivity in the Early Middle Ages. Published biannually (July and January), the journal collects exceptional pieces of work by both postgraduate students and established academics with an aim to promote the study of how people and communities interacted within and without their own world and localities in the Early Middle Ages. Issue 3.1 (April 2015) is devoted to the topic of Migration: The movement of people, languages, objects, ideas, institutions, and traditions have long been an essential part of discussions of both Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages. In recent decades the study of ‘(im)migration’ has become central to any discussion of these periods. This historical and historiographical attention has developed in association with other critical, intellectual and academic trends during these years, becoming entangled with concepts, ideas, and empirical data about ‘movement’, ‘space’, ‘land’, ‘centre/periphery’, ‘boundaries’, ‘transmission’, ‘communication’ and ‘ideology’. Within this, the role of present-day politics has never been far away, particularly as Europe has faced, during recent decades and continuing today, regularly shifting boundaries, alternative forms of citizenship, new inner confrontations, and re-emerged forms of emotive reactionism. What place do and should historians have in these debates? How self-reflective have we been about the pasts that we choose to research, and about how we represent them?

Networks and Neighbours (N&N) is a voice of the larger project of scholars by the same name. The project sponsors conference panels and runs masterclasses, lectures and other events, including our annual symposium rotating biannually between the University of Leeds and select sites around the globe. This international, or rather post-national, and also extra-institutional, intellectual spirit is embodied in the journal N&N. The editorial board of N&N consists of established leaders in the field as well as emerging young scholars working in early medieval studies. The methodologies, styles, chosen historiographies, historical representations and theses of the board members complement each other in various ways and provide emulative models of historical research and authorship. They also represent the firm, critical and confrontational interrogations needed to advance early medieval scholarship in radical directions and towards truly alternative ways of thinking and emerging the early medieval past.
