Graduate Student Life at Cornell
Medieval Studies at Cornell is an intensely alive program. Not all medievalists are in the Medieval Studies Program; we have a large number of students who are de facto medievalists based in other departments, such as Classics, English, German Studies, History, and Romance Studies. Most of the faculty are not only colleagues, but also friends. There is a great deal of intellectual exchange, informal reading groups, co-teaching, lunches, discussion of one another’s work, supervision of student teaching, lectures, and more.
Listed below are a number of annual and semesterly events in which graduate medievalists at Cornell often participate.
Vagantes Graduate Student Conference
Vagantes is an annual, travelling conference for graduate students studying any aspect of the Middle Ages. The conference was conceived with several goals in mind, which include fostering of a sense of community among medievalists in the beginning stages of their careers, providing exposure to an interdisciplinary forum, and showcasing the resources of the host institutions, all at minimal cost to graduate students.
The conference was held at Cornell in its third year, from March 11-14, 2004. For more information,visit http://www.vagantesconference.org/.
