A special feature of research in Modern Languages at Nottingham is our strong interest in the Medieval and Early Modern periods, from the tenth through to the late eighteenth century.
Our research covers the culture, literature, art, philosophy, history and intellectual history of several European nations and the New World.

Medieval research includes the saints and relics of the Orthodox world, the relationship between Byzantium and the East Slavs, the history of Spanish oral, scribal and print cultures, criticism of Spanish manuscripts and Spanish books of the Jewish diaspora.
