Spring Lecture Series

Since 1987, the University of New Mexico and the Institute for Medieval Studies have been proud to host the IMS Spring Lecture Series, an annual celebration of world-class scholarship and research on the UNM campus.  Attracting such luminaries as Michael Drout, Asa Mittman, Rory McTurk, and Martin Foys, these lectures are an amazing opportunity for students and members of the public to interact with leaders in the many fields of medieval research and to see presentations of their current work first-hand.
