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.
