The principles of the Medieval Studies program in the English department at the University of New Mexico call for collaboration and collective learning; we believe that we all become better students if we are there to help one another. As a result, the Medieval Graduate Students in English is a loose affiliation of the students in the English department who have dedicated themselves to the study of the Middle Ages. Graduate students pursuing a degree in English who have declared a focus in Medieval Studies and those whose Literature degrees include Medieval Studies in their programs are our members, while alumni have gone on to teach and research at important universities throughout the United States.
MeGSE has no central officers; as we are established to be an organization of mutual support, there is little need. You can find us studying together in the library, helping each other with scholarly presentations, or enjoying each others' company at one of the nearby local establishments. If you're interested in joining us, feel free to e-mail Dr. Anita Obermeier, our faculty advisor, who can put you in contact with members who can answer all of your questions.
