A warm welcome to a new term of seminars

Posted by Edward Mills

As the days start to lengthen and the lecture halls begin to fill up, the gears of the Centre for Medieval Studies are spinning up once again for 2024. We have an exciting range of events planned for this term at the Centre, the centrepiece of which is — as ever — our flagship Medieval Research Seminar series. After a stimulating first seminar with Steve Tibble last week, we’re looking forward to welcoming Charles West, Florence Eccleston, Gary Baker, and Teresa Witcombe to our Wednesday afternoon sessions later in the term. The term will conclude with our annual Orme Day, which incorporates both a postgraduate symposium and the evening Orme Lecture (delivered this year by Ruth Mazo Karras). Further information about the seminar (along with other events) is available on the Centre’s News and Events page.

Looking out across the Centre, our established reading groups are resuming with gusto, exploring texts in both French and Latin. Our colleagues in the Institute for Arab and Islamic Studies‘s Monday Majalis series frequently cover medieval topics, with sessions this term welcoming (among other speakers) Stefan Komola and Regula Forster.

All are welcome at all of our events; if you’d like to find out more, please don’t hesitate to contact the relevant convenors. If you’d like to share the news of any other medieval-facing seminars taking place around Exeter, please do comment below and we’ll be sure to share it through our usual channels.
