Let's get Medieval!

The MSSA is an official UNM organization comprised of graduate and undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines and majors who have a common interest: medieval studies and all related topics. The MSSA welcomes students from any major or discipline who are interested in the medieval period.

Our mission as an academic organization is to promote scholarship in medieval studies, both within the UNM community and the greater Albuquerque area. To that end, we organize a number of activities, such as:

  • hosting colloquia each semester, giving undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to present papers on topics that range from Anglo-Saxon poetry to modern interpretations of medieval motifs.
  • supporting the scholarly activities of the UNM Institute for Medieval Studies, such as the Spring Lecture Series.
  • peer mentoring and lecturing through community and high school outreach programs.
  • campus activities such as our Movie (K)nights film festival and celebration of Hildegard von Bingen's canonization.

The Lion in WinterJoin us for the screening of the 1968 film, The Lion in Winter. According to IMDb, it is about: "1183 AD: King Henry II's three sons all want to inherit the throne, but he won't commit to a choice. They and his wife variously plot to force him." It won three Oscars and seventeen other awards! Plus it stars Peter O'Toole, Katherine Hepburn, Anthony Hopkins, and more! So it's going to be great in other words. We will be in Humanities 108 from 7-9 hanging out and watching this film. And there will be food to top it all off! Hope to see you there!
