St. Jerome’s University, in partnership with the University of Waterloo, launched the Medieval Studies Lecture Series in 2006. Since that time, the Lecture Series has brought together medievalists from across North America to meet with SJU and uWaterloo students and colleagues to examine a variety of interdisciplinary topics pertaining to the Middle Ages. There are normally two lectures in the Fall term, and two more in the Winter. Each lecture is preceded by a public reception. Taken together, receptions and lectures typically last between ninety minutes to two hours. The Lecture Series is open to the public and we invite anyone interested in the Middle Ages to attend, regardless of background, stage of education, or discipline.
