Undergraduate Research Colloquium


Location: 715 J Hesburgh Library (Medieval Institute Seminar Room A)

Every year, undergraduate students who have taken medieval studies courses present papers on a wide range of topics. The 20-minute presentations are based on research work undertaken for a course and students are nominated for participation by their teachers. The papers are grouped into two sessions (one from 11 a.m. to noon and the second from 1 to 2 p.m.), and all participants and audience members are provided with a buffet lunch between the presentation periods.

Questions about this event may be emailed to the Medieval Institute’s Director of Undergraduate Studies Linda Major.
