CMRS: Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Trinity College Dublin

Welcome

*** UPDATE: THIS SITE WILL NO LONGER BE UPDATED (AS OF 01/2009)***
THE CMRS HAS MOVED BACK TO ITS PREVIOUS VIRTUAL HOME:

http://www.tcd.ie/Medieval_Renaissance/

 

The new-old site is a “true and accurate copy” of this one, except that it will be updated in the future.
Thank you to WordPress for hosting the Centre in the interrim period, and to Trinity for the smooth and seamless transfer!

The CMRS, one of the Trinity Research Centres, was established in the spring of 1999 with two major aims:

• to promote interdisciplinary collaboration between scholars working in the fields of Medieval and Renaissance studies both within and outside Trinity;
• and to raise the profile of Medieval and Renaissance studies at a national and an international level.

The Centre organises conferences, seminars, and public lectures on a regular basis, and has recently launched a schools liaison programme. It also offers a taught interdisciplinary M.Phil. in Medieval Language, Literature and Culture. It has developed close ties with a number of other institutions, works closely with the Society for Renaissance Studies, and is a member of CARMEN, the Confederation for the Advancement of Research through a Medieval European Network. It has a refereed book series, “Medieval and Renaissance Court Cultures,” published by Brepols.
