Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Culture 

The CMRC community gathers scholars and renowned academics as well as postgraduate research students from across the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. We study such topics as history, literature, politics, music, material culture, buildings and landscape of the period between late antiquity and 1700. We are all experts in our respective discipline, but what brings us together is a strong interest in interdisciplinarity and a commitment to developing an interdisciplinary approach to research. Our main activity, as a centre, revolves around the organisation of interdisciplinary study days, conferences and the Reuter lecture.
