The Medieval Forum is a graduate student working group in the Department of English at New York University. James C. Staples is the current PhD co-chair and Mary M. Alcaro is the current MA co-chair. Every semester we organize medieval events for the English, NYU, and greater NYC area communities. Our group combines the tradition of hosting guest speakers–previous speakers include Elaine Treharne (Stanford), Richard Emmerson (Manhattan College), Robert Mills (University College London), Stacy Klein (Rutgers University), Carolyn Dinshaw (NYU), and many more–with a reading group in which we practice pronouncing the Old and Middle English languages aloud. See the Past Events page for a quick look at what we’ve been up to for the past few years.
