Medieval Colloquium

The medieval colloquium is a graduate and faculty working group committed to enriching medieval studies at Princeton. Though we are mostly medievalists, we believe firmly that our field is enriched by discussion across periods and disciplines, and so we invite any and all interested people to attend our meetings. To this end, it is our hope to collaborate with other colloquia and organizations on Princeton’s campus and beyond. We invite speakers from institutions near and far, hoping to provide them with an environment in which they can share their work, receive feedback, and stir thought among all attendees. In recent years, we have hosted several esteemed medievalists, including, but not limited to, Eleanor Johnson, Mark Miller, and Emily Steiner.
