Cambridge Medieval Literature and Culture Seminar 2019-20

The Cambridge Medieval Literature and Culture Seminar (founded during the academic year 2017-2018) is an open space for scholars from Cambridge, the UK, and beyond to present their papers, followed by discussion. The seminar is made possible by the generous funding of the AHRC DTP for student-led group research; it meets on selected Thursdays, from 5pm-7pm, and continues informally over dinner. The seminar is aimed at graduate students (MPhil; PhD), but all are welcome. The scope of the MLCS is the study of medieval literature, linguistics, culture, music, philosophy, religion and art. This year (2019-2020), we aim to render the seminar even more comparative, considering the possible applications of modern critical theory to the Middle Ages. The seminar continues to be a welcoming forum for speakers and students to engage in productive dialogue, building interdisciplinary networks throughout the Humanities, and offering a positive learning environment for all interested in medieval studies.
