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:
MSSA is hosting the second Movie (K)night of the semester on Tuesday, October 22. We'll be watching the 1986 film version of Umberto Eco's 1980 novel The Name of the Rose, starring Sean Connery and Christian Slater (and featuring Ron Perlman in his best role to that point since The Quest for Fire). We'll also be selling our "Private Reserve" of books about the Middle Ages; this is the first time we've put this collection of items up for sale, so come and check out all of the great titles and support the MSSA by buying a few! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can be sure to buy enough food.
Every semester, the MSSA sponsors a student-organized and student-run colloquium where both undergraduates and graduates can present their work. If you'd like to share your scholarship on medieval topics with fellow students and experts publishing in the field, all in a friendly and constructive environment, then submit a short (250-word) abstract to email@example.com by Friday, October 25, as well as a note on your availability on the day of the Colloquium: Wednesday, November 6th.
