Research seminars

Listed below are the forthcoming seminars in the Centre for Medieval Studies. You may also download a printable version here: Research Seminar Poster 20-21

Seminars will be hosted online until further notice.

This year, we are also experimenting with format. Seminars will take one of the following forms:

  • Standard 45-min talk
  • 20-30 min 'Show and Tell' introduction to a primary source or research question
  • 40 min interview with a member of staff

The Barton and Orme Lectures are public talks. If you would like to attend any of the other seminars and are not on the Centre for Medieval Studies mailing list, please contact Helen Birkett (H.Birkett@exeter.ac.uk).
