Institute for Medieval & Early Modern Studies (IMEMS)

IMEMS members meet frequently with staff at other Welsh universities (Cardiff, Swansea and Trinity St. David) via the Welsh Video Network, for research seminars in medieval and early modern studies. The series attracts speakers from a variety of disciplines and from all over the world, who sometimes give papers within the Institute’s research strands, but also talk on subjects of general interest, providing an opportunity for people working on different areas to exchange ideas.
