Autumn lecture series: IHR Seminar Medieval Europe 1150–1550

This year the IHR seminar series will take place in a hybrid form, with some in-person meetings with a live-stream via the usual Zoom room, and some Zoom-only seminars as well. All who wish to attend the seminar in person are very welcome.

The in-person seminars will take place at UCL in Cruciform LT2 (entry via Gower Street), and we still occupy our traditional Thursday evening slot, 5.30pm.

Whether you attend online or in person, it is necessary to register for the event via the IHR Seminars website (the events will go online very shortly).

If you have any questions or enquiries please address them to Andrew Jotischky ( or Emily Corran (
