Graduate Reading Group

FoRMS maintains an informal graduate student reading group which meets two to four times annually. This reading group provides a more focused and extended opportunity for graduate students to discuss important secondary and primary works in medieval studies, and is an essential venue for interdisciplinary exchange among medieval studies graduate students in a variety of departments. See below for our current schedule of reading groups:
