Medieval Encounters

Seminar or event series

Medieval encounters is an interdisciplinary medieval seminar series, supported by the Trevelyan Fund and the History Faculty. Seminars normally take place in St Catharine’s College twice a term, including lectures and  events such as meetings with international graduate students and debates. Until further notice seminars are held on Zoom. The link will be circulated to Medieval Research mailing list members
