The Medieval Lunch Series

Begun in Winter 2010 by professors Cathy Sanok (English) and Hussein Fancy (History) as the Monday Medieval Brownbag, this series is now being run by a Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop under the rubric "Forum on Research in Medieval Studies" (FoRMS), the Medieval Lunch Series. FoRMS also holds reading group meetings throughout the academic year. Contact student coordinators Megan Behrend and Nicholas Holterman for more information. Join us on Facebook.
