Started in 1994, the University of Chicago’s Medieval Studies Workshop brings together faculty and graduate students from the University and from the wider Chicago community.
The Medieval Studies Workshop sponsors presentations by graduate students, faculty, and visiting scholars each academic year. Our members — either medievalists or those with an interest in the medieval period — come from a wide variety of disciplines including Art History, English, Divinity, History, Music, Linguistics, Romance and Germanic Languages and Literatures, and Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations (NELC). While workshop sessions tend to focus on the European Middle Ages, c. 500-1500, we have sponsored speakers on related areas such as Islamic and Byzantine studies.
