Once a month, graduate student and faculty medievalists gather for lunch and collegial, interdisciplinary discussions on a topic of interest to our scholarly community. We gather at noon in the Medieval Institute Seminar Room and eat our brown bag lunches (with soft drinks and cookies provided to all). At 12:20 sharp, the presentation will begin; at 12:40, the presenter will open the floor for discussion; and at 1:00 we will adjourn.
This is a highly informal occasion, and the presentations will be precisely twenty minutes in length. In the interest of fairness and in the hopes of promoting regular attendance, we do not announce the name of the presenter or the topic of his or her presentation until the event takes place.
