Trinity Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies

The Trinity Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, one of the Trinity Research Centres, was established in the spring of 1999 with two major aims:

  1. to promote interdisciplinary collaboration between scholars working in the fields of Medieval and Renaissance studies both within and outside Trinity;
  2. and to raise the profile of Medieval and Renaissance studies at a national and an international level.

The Centre organises conferences, seminars, and public lectures on a regular basis, and has recently launched a schools liaison programme. It promotes collaboration through its various Research Networks, which range from Early-Modern Gardens to Chaucer, from Byzantine Studies to Early-Modern Women in Europe. It has a refereed book series 'Court Cultures of the Middle Ages and Renaissance', which is published by Peter Lang. It also offers a taught interdisciplinary M.Phil. in Medieval Language, Literature and Culture. It has developed close ties with a number of other institutions, works closely with the Society for Renaissance Studies and MediumAeveum, and is a member of CARMEN, the Confederation for the Advancement of Research through a Medieval European Network. It has a refereed book series, “Medieval and Renaissance Court Cultures,” published by Brepols.
