Medieval Hispanic Research Seminar

Welcome to the Medieval Hispanic Research Seminar (MHRS) based in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures at Queen Mary, University of London. 

MHRS was founded in 1967 by Professor Alan Deyermond to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of work by graduate students at Westfield College. Since then, it has expanded its remit to include advanced research from scholars at all stages in their careers working on the art, culture, history, languages, and literatures of the Iberian world in the Middle Ages.

  • If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact the director: Rosa Vidal Doval.
