Medieval Midlands provides postgraduates with an online forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas as they progress through their research.

The network aims to facilitate discussion between all 6 institutions in the Midlands3Cities consortium and to encourage interdisciplinary and cross-period debate. However, we welcome participation from postgraduates and staff from all institutions and disciplines.
