Autumn School

Autumn School for Medieval Languages and Culture

Autumn School for Medieval Languages and Culture, organised by the Henri Pirenne Institute at Ghent University

Our second large recurring event, next to the Medieval Seminar Series, is the annual Autumn School for Medieval Languages and Culture where international experts teach historical languages and the auxiliary sciences of Medieval Studies. Occasionally, schools can also be thematic. We organise these postgraduate trainings specifically in order to develop the skillset of advanced MA- and early PhD-students, helping their research and career opportunities. We particularly focus on knowledge and skills that are not part of most regular academic curricula anymore.

Postgraduate students from Ghent University, other Belgian universities and abroad can attend.
