Medieval History Postgraduate Seminar Series

The Postgraduate Mediæval History Seminar series is intended to provide a space for postgraduates at all stages (from MLitts to final year PhDs) to present ideas, discuss research issues, and get some practical experience before conferences, submissions, etc. Refreshments are provided, and after each session we adjourn to the speaker's choice of pub for a more informal discussion.

If you would like to present a paper, please contact either Jiazhu Hu or Dana Weaver.
