Medieval Studies Program
Medieval studies is a broad category of study that analyses cultural materials
from the era c. 500-1500 AD. These materials include myths, philosophy, history,
heroic stories, theology, combat, fine arts, language, military history,
manuscripts, literature, politics, music, economics, calligraphy, urban studies,
architecture, language history, images, philosophy of science, cultural studies,
gender studies, and many other areas and disciplines. Study of the medieval era
frequently requires an inherent interdisciplinary approach as well as a variety
of intellectual approaches. Medieval studies in modern universities also include
courses in medievalism, that is, the study of the representations of medieval
cultures in modern or contemporary cultures.
