Student Association (MEMSA)

MEMSA lies at the heart of postgraduate participation, fully interdisciplinary in nature, involving postgraduates from all three faculties of the University. 

All postgraduates working on material relating to the Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern periods, whether reader for taught or research degrees are invited and encouraged to join. Our primary aim is to promote the sharing of ideas, questions, and challenges emerging from postgraduate research in order to initiate and galvanise conversations across disciplines. In addition, MEMSA is dedicated to providing warm and supportive relations between MA students and the wider postgraduate community.
