The MRG, founded over twenty years ago, continues its successful program of meetings at the homes of members on Friday evenings, featuring a pot-luck supper followed by a presentation or discussion. The group's purpose is to provide an informal environment for an exchange of ideas on a wide range of medieval topics and for the presentation of conference papers or works in progress in a friendly atmosphere. It facilitates informal interaction among University of Minnesota medievalists from all the departments associated with the Center and those at neighboring institutions. For further information please contact Pat Eldred.
MEMRG is made up mainly of graduate students from the English Department. Each year MEMRG hosts a graduate student colloquium and an invited lecture, along with various social events. For further information about the group contact Caitlin McHugh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Medieval and Early Modern Interdisciplinary Graduate Workshop (a.k.a. Ye Olde Workshoppe), meets roughly every other week throughout the school year. The workshop is a place for graduate students across the university to present, discuss, and receive feedback from both students and faculty commenters on their works in progress, such as conference papers, articles, and dissertation chapters. The MEMIGW focuses on Europe from roughly 400 to 1789. If you are interested, please email Cameron Bradley at email@example.com for more information.
In the past the Center has sponsored an Old Norse reading group. If you are interested in participating please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Classical Arabic Reading Group connects faculty and advanced graduate students who are interested in working with primary texts from the medieval and early modern Islamic world. For more information, contact the Center at email@example.com.
