Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS)

It has four main purposes: to administer postgraduate teaching for the long-standing MA by Coursework and Dissertation, to promote research through our MA, MPhil and PhD by research, to encourage publications in the Medieval and Early Modern periods, and to develop links with Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library.
