In connection with the major loan exhibition of the Lindisfarne Gospels in Durham (1 July-30 September 2013), the seminar programme for 2013 explores the Lindisfarne Gospels and its world. With topics ranging from Holy Island and the culture of contemporary Northumbria, though different aspects of the Lindisfarne Gospels itself, to the place of the manuscript within broader traditions of book culture and illumination, the series showcases new work and offers fresh perspectives on a Northumbrian masterpiece, its contexts and implications.
About the Institute
The Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies is one of the most diverse and dynamic centres of medieval and early modern studies in the world. The IMEMS aims to inform the shape of medieval and early modern studies through its researchers and their collaborative, interdisciplinary projects, through its engagement with funding councils and public policy, through its first-rate postgraduate community, and through its national and international impact. The unique resources of Durham - collections of manuscripts and early printed books unparalleled outside Oxford, Cambridge and London, unsurpassed history and architecture, and first class students and staff form the intellectual hub for the IMEMS. The Institute includes forty-five scholars across thirteen Departments and three Faculties, as well as a vibrant community of postgraduates.
Above all, the IMEMS provides a forum and network for contact and the exchange of information. Always lively, the Durham medieval and early modern scene is now set for still more activity and excitement. If you are in Durham already, engage! If you are considering coming here, we look forward to welcoming you.
