CMRS Reading Group for Graduate Students and Faculty

Published: June 2, 2020

CMRS plans to host a monthly medieval and Renaissance reading group for graduate students and faculty. We’re proposing an ongoing, online conversation through summer and into the next academic year. CMRS-affiliated graduate students and faculty can 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 will occur on the second Wednesday of the month—on July 8, August 12, and September 9—from 5-6:30 pm via Zoom.

Suggest a text! The reading group will only work if 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.

The Reading Group will be coordinated by Matthew Fisher (English). To suggest and send a PDF of a reading, email Erin Romo and Matthew Fisher.
