THE CENTRE FOR MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE STUDIES (CMRS) at Monash was established in 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 2014, contributing to a History Major or Minor, click here.
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 (Friday, 11 am, Building 11, Room E561). This semester features presentations by Hugh Hudson (University of Melbourne), Kathleen Neal (CMRS), John Crossley (CMRS), Eoin Devlin (Cambridge University), Clare Monagle (CMRS), Vince Dziekan (Art and Design, Monash), Michael Wyatt, Martin McLaughlin (Oxford University), Anne Holloway (CMRS), Diana Jeske (CMRS), and Megan Cassidy-Welch (CMRS).
