Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IMEMS)

IMEMS MISSION STATEMENT

IMEMS is one of the largest and most diverse concentrations of medieval and early modern studies in the world. A versatile ensemble of academics, curators, students, practitioners, and volunteers, we cover a comprehensive range of areas from Late Antiquity to the late eighteenth century, with a global range from the Silk Road to the Anglo-Saxon and Viking North. We promote the global standing of Durham University’s research, and its museums and collections, by initiating, co-ordinating and supporting networks, programmes and projects, and lectures and workshops for both specialists and the wider public. As the academic hub for Durham’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, we champion a framework for rigorous research, impact, and dissemination, in order to strengthen the global understanding and appreciation of one of Europe’s great Palatinates. Durham is a site of Outstanding Universal Value: by studying its past, we engage with the present and map strategies for its future.
