The Medieval Seminar

The Centre for Medieval Studies organises the interdisciplinary Medieval Seminar (Medeltidsseminariet) on a regular basis at the Department of History. It offers a platform for collaboration between different disciplines and an opportunity to present new publications, new projects, and work-in-progress. The speakers represent the different disciplines of medieval studies within the Centre. The medieval seminar also hosts lectures and seminars in which international visiting scholars present and discuss their research. Seminars are open to the public, both academic and non-academic.

Time: 15:00–17:00. Place: D900, Department of History, Stockholm University.
