About

Bristol's importance as medieval England's second city and a major maritime port for trade and exploration makes it an excellent setting for interdisciplinary intellectual exchange. The Centre for Medieval Studies from University of Bristol  has internationally recognised expertise in a wide range of subject areas.

Overview

Research towards MPhil and PhD is supported in the following subject areas: archaeology, drama, English, French, history, history of art, Italian, medieval Latin, music, religion and theology. Applications from prospective graduate students wishing to undertake interdisciplinary research are particularly welcome.

Careers

A significant number of graduates from the Medieval Studies  programme offered by the University of Bristol  develop careers as academics in higher education. Others move into academic-related jobs in archives, libraries or academic administration, with many maintaining the capacity to undertake new and innovative research in the field of medieval studies. Some come to medieval studies as mature students in retirement and go on to become independent researchers.

Programme Structure

Research groups

  • The study of the Middle Ages at the University of Bristol includes looking at literature, art, history, language, religion, law and the thought of western European civilisation between c.500 and c.1500. Bristol's medievalists focus on medieval culture and the whole complex of ways in which a society functions, thinks about itself and expresses its identity.
  • The medievalist community at Bristol is widely recognised as having established truly interdisciplinary methods of working in integrated ways, engaging in vigorous cross-disciplinary dialogues that permeate many aspects of research and postgraduate teaching.
