Juan José Larrea is Professor of Medieval History at UPV/EHU. He was awarded his PhD by the University of Toulouse II – Le Mirail.
His work focuses on two main areas of research: the social and political history of Vasconia and the kingdom of Pamplona from the end of the Empire to the first feudal age, on the one hand, and the rural history of the early medieval West on the other, with special attention to the study of the early Carolingian archives.
He has directed and still directs doctoral theses related to both fields, and has coordinated several National Plan projects as PI. He is an associate member of the Framespa laboratory of the CNRS-Université de Toulouse-Jean Jaurès and of the Cercle de Travail sur les conditions de production du savoir médiévistique (LaMOP-CNRS) and has been a visiting researcher at the Institut für Frühmittelalterforschung of the University of Münster.
Between 2001 and 2004 he was Vice-Rector for Basque at UPV/EHU.
Francesca Tinti is Ikerbasque Research Professor in the Philology and History Department at the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU.
She was awarded her first degree by the University of Bologna and her PhD by the University of Padua. Before joining UPV/EHU in 2009, she worked for several years at the Universities of Cambridge and Bologna.
Her research interests include early medieval religious, social and cultural history. She has published extensively on charters and cartularies, paying special attention to the interactions between Latin and vernaculars in the documentary practices of early medieval England and the eastern Frankish territories.
She has directed several research projects, including The Digital Edition of the Becerro Galicano and The Languages of Early Medieval Charters. She is also interested in the relations between England and the European continent in the early Middle Ages and has recently published a volume on Europe and the Anglo-Saxons (2021) with Cambridge University Press.
