Please join us at the Medieval Studies Graduate Student Roundtable this semester!
The Roundtable is a place for graduate students to workshop their projects and a community space where everyone's voice and presence are valued whether or not they have expertise on the topic being presented. It is both a space for graduate students to receive feedback on their works in progress and an opportunity for faculty and graduate students to learn more about the wide range of specialties represented in the medievalist community at Cornell.
Good news! The Roundtable will be in person again this semester--with refreshments and snacks once again! Meet in Olin Library room 703.

- 3:00 to 4:30 pm on Friday, September 23rd
