Welcome to the South Carolina Medievalists Group

Posted by: Emily Beck | October 21, 2019 | No Comment |

The South Carolina Medievalists Group is an informal group of professional scholars of all disciplines – faculty and students alike – based in South Carolina. The group meeting provides the opportunity for medievalists, premodernists, and early modernists to connect with other researchers throughout our state and engage in informal conversations about current academic approaches and the state of medieval research and teaching in South Carolina. We welcome professionals in any area or discipline relating to medieval, premodern, and early modern studies, as well as those engaged in interdisciplinary and pedagogical approaches.

Our current group includes researchers in a broad range of academic disciplines. For more information, or to join our email list, please email: scmedievalists@gmail.com.

We welcome all who wish to join the group. There are no dues or registration fees to participate in our twice yearly symposia.
