CMRS Reading Group for Graduate Students and Faculty

Wednesday, November 11 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Zoom Meeting, Online + Google Map

CMRS hosts a monthly medieval and Renaissance reading group for graduate students and faculty. CMRS-affiliated graduate students and faculty propose and share an article or a book particularly important for their research, and then participate in an informal discussion about that text. Seeing the diverse topics and methods of our research as one of the central strengths of CMRS, the reading group is focused on providing an intellectually-stimulating but casual space to foster the sorts of conversations that took place organically at Center events.

Meetings occur on the second Wednesday of the month—on October 14, November 11, and  December 9—from 5-6:30 pm via Zoom.

Suggest a text! The reading group works best when YOU suggest an article or book chapter or short primary text you wish to discuss. We will happily read a few texts across fields/periods, as well.

To suggest and send a PDF of a reading, email CMRS Program Coordinator Erin Romo and Professor Matthew Fisher. The Reading Group is coordinated by Professor Fisher (English).

Invitations to register for the Zoom link will be sent by email.
