A collaborative approach to studying the European Middle Ages

We are one of the UK's leading centres for medieval research and teaching. We link Nottingham researchers with interests in medieval cultures, and foster collaboration with international scholars.

Medieval studies is an inherently interdisciplinary subject. There are medievalists in the Schools of English, Humanities, and Cultures, Languages and Area Studies, who collaborate more widely with colleagues in the Institutes of Genetics, and Science and Society, and the Schools of Biosciences and Geography.
