The Forum for Research in Medieval Studies (FoRMS), formed as a Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop (RIW) in Fall 2010, serves as a structure for the Medieval Lunch series and a reading group for graduate students. Operating under the auspices of the Medieval and Early Modern Studies program, this RIW involves graduate students and faculty who study art, culture, literature, history, and social forms from a wide-range of departments. In its geographical, historical, and disciplinary scope, FoRMS aims to provide an important forum for graduate students and faculty to discuss their work as contributions to the broad field of “medieval studies.”
