Institute for Medieval Studies
Presented annually, the IMS Spring Lecture Series is interdisciplinary, regularly incorporating lectures on music, art history, science, history, and literature. The aim is to supplement and enhance curricular offerings. Because of its thematic organization, we look upon the lecture series as a mini-course, designed for public consumption. This series is free and open to the public.
