Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies

    This cross-disciplinary research centre brings together all medievalists, staff and students, from different departments and research groups at Ghent University.

    We organise the Medieval Seminar Series, at which a wide range of topics are presented to an interdisciplinary audience.

    We also provide international training in the disciplines and auxiliary sciences of Medieval Studies.

      Pirenne Research Consortium for Medieval Studies

      In 2013, a smaller Research Consortium has been established within the institute.

      As one of five research consortia supported by the Ghent University Research Department, we focus especially on multi-disciplinary research projects that contribute to:

      • Exploring and re-evaluating the geographical and chronological boundaries of the¬† medieval world through cross-cultural and multi-period research
      • Developing research tools and techniques for accessing, evaluating, and preserving medieval source material
      • Collaboration and knowledge exchange with local and international partners and stakeholders
