Medieval and Medievalism 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. Students will also examine the field of Medievalism, that is, the study of the representations and legacies of the Middle Ages in later historical periods, including our own times.
