Welcome to the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies

THE CENTRE FOR MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE STUDIES (CMRS) at Monash was established by Academic Board at its meeting of 12 October 2011 and launched on 1 March 2012. The Centre draws on the expertise of academic and research staff from the Department of History and from across the university and beyond.

It aims to promote research and to provide specialist research training and support for honours and postgraduate students, and to coordinate first to third level units as a pathway for undergraduates. For information to help you make decisions about a pathway in medieval and renaissance studies in 2016, contributing to a History Major or Minor, see: History.

The Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies is located at Monash Clayton and the Monash University Prato Centre (the Bill Kent Library), and is the hub of the Prato Consortium for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.

The main forum for the CMRS is the weekly seminar (11am Friday, 20 Chancellors Walk, Room E561). Contact the postgraduate committee to be included on the mailing list.
