Medieval and Early Modern Studies

MEMS (Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Newcastle) brings together the university's research expertise in medieval and early modern studies up to c. 1800.  We are an interdisciplinary group and our members come from English Literature, History, Music, Modern Languages and Classics.

We host conferences and symposia and run an annual series of guest lectures by eminent scholars in our disciplines. We support members' research by convening interdisciplinary workshops on topics of shared interest and welcome proposals for interdisciplinary workshops in particular.  We have a strong collective interest in archival work and  in building up links between the Faculty and regional archives and we particularly welcome workshops and talks given by archivists, librarians and curators.
