The Late Antique, Medieval, and Byzantine Workshop at Princeton University (LAMB) brings together graduate students from across departments and disciplines who study and research any region ca. 300-1500 CE, and offers an opportunity to present and discuss their research with others from within and outside their fields.
In addition to providing scholarly support, development, and camaraderie, LAMB prepares us to flourish after graduation. Pre-modernists are often tasked with teaching across geographies and time periods. Learning from each other through workshops provides an opportunity to put our research and our disciplines in conversation with one another. This is essential since medieval studies is unusually interdisciplinary by design, necessity, and institutional history.
For the 2020-21 academic year, LAMB will be coordinated by Abigail Sargent and Emily R. Chesley, directed by Professor Helmut Reimitz, and housed in the Program in Medieval Studies. LAMB is cosponsored by the Center for Collaborative History.
