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.
