California Medieval History Seminar

The meeting dates for the California Medieval History Seminar during the 2014-15 academic year are:

November 8, 2014
March 14, 2015
May 2, 2015

Each meeting is held on a Saturday, from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm in the Seaver Classrooms 1 and 2 at the Huntington Library in San Marino.

The Seaver Classrooms are located in the Munger Building (aka the Research and Administration Building). This is the large, imposing building with columns located to the right when walking toward the main entrance to the Huntington gardens.

The seminar is free to faculty and graduate students of California universities; others are welcome (provided space is available) but are asked to pay $25 to cover associated costs.

Advance registration is required. To register, write to cmrs@humnet.ucla.edu . Speakers and paper topics are announced by email. Please write us to be added to the announcement list.

Papers for the Seminar are downloaded from www.cmrs.ucla.edu/med_hist_sem_readings (user name and password provided when registering). Papers are available to registrants before the meeting so they may read them in advance and discuss them at the seminar.

The California Medieval History Seminar provides peer-review and fosters intellectual exchange, acquainting participants with medieval historical research currently underway in the state. Three times a year, the seminar gathers at the Huntington Library to discuss four research papers (two by faculty members, two by graduate students or recent Ph.D. recipients).
