Medieval Tapestry

The Medieval Studies Institute is a center for the study of medieval cultures from the fifth to the fifteenth centuries. Participating faculty are drawn from twenty academic departments at Indiana University.


The Institute administers area certificates and minors in Medieval Studies, coordinates an active schedule of events and colloquia open to the public, and promotes interdisciplinary work among the many Indiana faculty and students engaged in medieval studies.

Venice
Many Medieval Studies Institute students take advantage of opportunities to study abroad.

In addition to the interdisciplinary and archival courses offered by the Institute itself, a full schedule of medieval courses is offered in the participating academic departments. Approximately 65 medieval courses are offered at Indiana University each year, not including the many courses in language instruction and independent research that student medievalists frequently take.

Graduate students at Indiana can earn a Graduate Area Certificate or Ph.D. Minor in Medieval Studies. Undergraduates can pursue an Undergraduate Area Certificate or Medieval Minor. However, many students participate in medieval studies at Indiana without enrolling in any of these formal programs, either by taking courses or by attending some of the Institute's many activities.

Medieval Studies Newsletter

The Medieval Studies Newsletter keeps our community informed about current events and documents the accomplishments of our faculty and students.

We are now making the newsletter available online for your convenience. If you would like a paper copy mailed to you, please contact the Institute.

 

Back issues are available online.

 

Journals Initiative

The Medieval Studies Institute houses an ongoing resource called the Journals Initiative which supports the publication of three journals relating to medieval studies: The Medieval Review, Textual Cultures: Texts, Contexts, Interpretation, and Exemplaria.
