Begun in 2002 in honor of Robert M. Conway, Notre Dame alumnus and trustee and long-time friend and supporter of the Medieval Institute, the annual Conway Lectures bring senior scholars of international distinction to Notre Dame each fall to speak on topics across a variety of disciplines. The 2022 Conway Lectures are on “Medieval Multilingualism” and will be delivered by Scott Johnson (Oklahoma), Paul Russell (Cambridge), and Susie Phillips (Northwestern).
The Medieval Institute at the University of Notre Dame is one of the leading centers in the United States for the advanced study of medieval culture. The graduate program provides students with superb technical training, but it also equips them with a holistic vision of the Middle Ages, grounded in a mastery of sources and languages and extending to the whole of its life and culture.
Established in 1946, the Medieval Institute is the oldest and largest center in the United States dedicated to the study and teaching of all aspects of medieval culture. Your gift will allow the Medieval Institute to continue the outstanding work of its faculty and students.
