Medieval Studies

Year of Funding: 

The Medieval Studies Graduate Interest Group (MSGIG) aims to bring together medieval scholars from a wide variety of departments on campus to foster collaboration between disciplines on topics concerning the middle ages. The group is open to graduate students, faculty, staff, undergraduates and community members interested in the Middle Ages.

Recent interest in crossdisciplinary work is actually a revival of a mode of thinking prevalent in the medieval period when religion, art, literature, history, and music intermingled to produce illuminated manuscripts of both religious and lay literature, works of stained glass in cathedrals, hymns and songs performed by bards, medieval drama and much more. It is therefore crucial that medievalists approach their scholarship with the same perspective that their subject of study represents.
