Medieval Studies Working Group


Location: MI Seminar Room, 715J Hesburgh Library


Ann Astell, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame

Hannah Matis, Ph.D. Candidate, Medieval Institute, University of Notre Dame

The Medieval Studies Working Group provides an opportunity for junior and senior scholars to engage in larger questions of methodology, the viability of interdisciplinarity, and the specific forms it might take within the umbrella of “medieval studies” as well as within specific disciplines. Speakers will be encouraged to highlight their methodological approach either in the body of their talk or in the subsequent question and answer session.

By placing practitioners of different methodologies and disciplines into direct contact with each other, the organizers envision the Working Group as a place of active dialogue and debate between scholars not only from different departments, but also from inside and outside the Notre Dame community.

Any who are interested are welcome to join the speakers for dinner afterward at The Mark (in Eddy Street Commons). There is no need to RSVP for the working group session, but please let the organizers know if you would like to attend dinner.
