Medieval and Renaissance Studies draws together students and faculty interested in the analysis of society and culture from late antiquity to, roughly speaking, the mid-seventeenth century. While centered on Europe, the research interests and curricular offerings of our faculty also embrace developments in related cultures, especially those of the Mediterranean. Thus, as an interdisciplinary course of study, Medieval and Renaissance Studies enables students to examine post-antique and pre-modern cultures from a variety of interconnected perspectives. More broadly, we constitute an intellectual community of faculty and students defined as much by the period and places we study as by our own disciplinary formations.
