The University of Cambridge Senior Seminar in Medieval Art meets every other week during full term, attracting an impressive range of speakers from home and abroad.

The Department of the History of Art is pleased to announce the programme for the annual Medieval Art Seminar Series 2017-18. This year the seminars address the theme of transmission and communication in medieval art and architecture, with an emphasis on the movement of ideas, designs and forms and the methods by which they were conveyed.

Papers will be held on alternating Mondays during Michaelmas and Lent terms, with an additional session in Lent. The venue for the seminars is Lecture Room 2 of the History of Art Department (1-5 Scroope Terrace, Cambridge CB2 1PX), beginning promptly at 5.30pm. Following questions, attendees are invited to stay and speak more informally with speakers over wine and light nibbles. Lectures are free and open to the public.
