Centre for the Study of Medieval Society and Culture

Promoting interdisciplinary study of the Middle Ages by bringing together specialists from several different subject areas within Cardiff University to collaborate in research and graduate teaching.

We aim to promote interdisciplinary study of the Middle Ages, bringing together specialists from several different subject areas within the University to collaborate in high-quality research and graduate teaching. Members of the Centre include staff and postgraduate students from the Schools of History, Archaeology and Religious Studies, English, Communication and Philosophy and Welsh.

We run a regular programme of research seminars and organises conferences and workshops, providing a focus for collaboration and discussion as well as an opportunity to bring scholars to the University from overseas. Its academic and social events are open to, and well supported by, non-University medievalists in the region.
