Stanford Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS) is a multidisciplinary community working together to reveal new perspectives on medieval and early modern studies. The mission of CMEMS is to promote innovative research and foster lively dialogue and debate among faculty, students, librarians, and interested participants. We aim to nurture the dynamic engagement with these rich and rewarding earlier periods of such literary, cultural, social and historical importance.
The Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages offers an undergraduate minor in Medieval Studies. The minor in Medieval Studies:
African and African American Studies
While Comparative Literature seeks to prepare its students for reading and research in the languages and histories of different societies and periods, it is also dedicated to their critical and cultural analysis.
East Asian Studies
This course of study cultivates the power of individual expression within a vibrant community of writers.
