The Institute for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IMEMS)

The Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies (IMEMS) is part of the research and enterprise partnership between Aberystwyth and Bangor Universities. It was launched in 2006 and is a collaborative interdisciplinary research institute. IMEMS brings together researchers and postgraduate students from both Universities working in the fields of history, literature, music, theology and Celtic studies, in the period 500-1800.

Its core activities include a fortnightly video-link research seminar which is broadcast live across Wales.

IMEMS organizes programmes of conferences, workshops and colloquia, which are attended by scholars from around the world. IMEMS provides a lively research environment for Postgraduate Students, whether at Masters or PhD level. With the regular programmes of research seminars, student led workshops and postgraduate training sessions, IMEMS offers a supportive and stimulating context for postgraduate work in medieval and early modern studies.
