The Medieval Committee

Published

The Medieval Committee at the University of Gothenburg was established in 1984 as a result of the interdisciplinary collaboration between the departments of the Faculty of Humanities.

The committee has since organized a large number of guest lectures, seminars and conferences at the faculty. Medieval studies belong to the Faculty of Humanities' profile areas. The Medieval Committee's interdisciplinary activities strengthen and develop the position of medieval research at the University of Gothenburg.
