FORUM FOR MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE STUDIES IN IRELAND
FORUM UM LÉANN NA MEÁN-AOISE AGUS AN RENAISSANCE IN ÉIRINN

This the Forum’s RESOURCES page has but one simple aim in life: to be useful. Without further ado, here are our proudly functional categories:

Please do tell us about other websites you would like to see added to the RESOURCES pages. This part of the Forum is under construction; it will be expanded to spread over several inter-connected “satellites.” For some cogitations on the current state of affairs in the planning department please see FMRSI Resources: The Next Steps (comments very very very welcome).

CENTRES, DEPARTMENTS, AND PROGRAMMES

Whilst the primary aim here is to promote interdisciplinary centres (e.g. the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at TCD), we will also make some attempt to list as many university departments as possible that offer courses and programmes in the area; with a bias towards interdisciplinarity. It is hoped that this information might be useful to students interested in pursuing Medieval and Renaissance studies: from choosing course options to full degrees, undergraduate or postgraduate. Ph. D study is a whole other kettle of fish: the roughest of guides is provided here below.
