Centre for Medieval Studies

Faculty List

Professor and Director 
S. Akbari, BA, MA, MPH, PhD 


The Centre for Medieval Studies provides a course in the thousand-year period from the Fall of Rome to the Fall of Constantinople, and beyond. Students can expect to cross the disciplinary boundaries of history, art, literature, philosophy, religion, and history of science, focusing not only on Europe but on the broader Mediterranean and North Sea regions.  The course opens up the Centre for the first time to undergraduate students and provides a valuable humanities breadth experience for students who want to experience the culture, poetry, and art of the Middle Ages, as well as medieval music and drama performance and manuscript studies.
