The Cambridge Medieval Literature & Culture Seminar (“CamMedSem”), formerly the Cambridge Medieval French Research Seminar, is an open space for scholars from the University of Cambridge, elsewhere in the UK, and beyond to present their current research, followed by discussion.
The seminar is organised by doctoral students and early career researchers.
CamMedSem works primarily in French, Francophone, and Occitan studies, though the seminar often engages with scholarship in the fields of Italian and English. We welcome speakers with various interdisciplinary, comparative, and theoretical interests.
Take a look at our schedule for our exciting line-up of speakers, sign up to our events, follow us on social media, or feel free to contact us for more information. Don't forget to subscribe to our mailing list!
We look forward to seeing you!
