For those of you who are new to the medieval community at Yale, Medieval Lunch is a longstanding weekly event held Tuesdays from 12:00-1:00 pm. It’s a great opportunity for everyone interested in the broadly-construed Middle Ages to come together and learn about and discuss new work. Presentations usually start at 12:30 and run for 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions afterward. Medieval Lunch is a friendly place to test out upcoming conference presentations, but we also welcome less formal presentations of works in progress. Presentations can be from members of any program or department at Yale as well as from outside speakers. To learn more about Medieval Lunch, visit our website and please reach out to me at if you have any questions.
We welcome you to sign up to present next semester via this link, and we look forward to seeing you at Medieval Lunch!
