Seminar Programs

California Medieval History Seminars
The California Medieval History Seminar provides peer-review and fosters intellectual exchange, acquainting participants with medieval historical research currently underway in the state. Three times a year, the seminar gathers at the Huntington Library to discuss four research papers (two by faculty members, two by graduate students or recent Ph.D. recipients).

Mediterranean Studies Seminars
Mediterranean Studies: East and West at the Center, 1050-1600, is a series of seminars organized by Professor Zrinka Stahuljak (UCLA French & Francophone Studies}) and funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which considers the Mediterranean as a center for both East and West, and the site of a world system rather than a line of separation between the emerging “West” and an exotic “East.”

Sawyer Seminar: Disputation
With the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CMRS presented a John E. Sawyer Seminar for 2007-8 on the topic of disputation. The seminar was a series of conversations on the topic of disputation from philosophical, literary, and social perspectives, led by faculty from UCLA and other leading universities.
