Description

This session will look at the medieval university, an institution developed in the twelfth century and greatly expanded in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, asking twenty-first century questions. We will think about the studium generale and its implications for the humanities and the liberal arts more generally today. We will also think about discipline, student bursaries, movement of students and teachers, acquiring credits and graduating, specialist universities and faculties and all the other elements of the modern university that come to us from the medieval university in the particular form that we have them.
