Premodern Studies

Premodern Studies


Premodern Studies is a complex set of methods, and theory that spans geographical boundaries, linguistic delineations and time periods. It looks at people & things emancipated from contemporary implications -- the border between the history and the commons.

This guide is a jumping-off point for work in Premodern Studies, from entering the conversation with scholars and relevant fields through research, to finding primary sources to study, and to explore collaborations and public-facing work.

Questions? Ask a librarian (e.g., André G. Wenzel) or the Center for Premodern Studies.
