Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series

Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! 

No papers, no tests, just interesting information about life long ago.


Co-sponsored by the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies University of Oklahoma


Visit the Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies homepage for more events and for information about the newly revived Medieval & Renaissance Studies minor which allows students to pursue an interdisciplinary study of literature, language, history, history of science, art, architecture, and religion, supported by visits to OU's Special Collections.


A special thank you to Professors Joseph Sullivan and Joyce Coleman for coordinating all of our speakers this year and to the Norman Public Library for hosting us!


All lectures are 6:30 p.m. at the Central Norman Public Library, Lowry Room, 225 N Webster unless otherwise noted.
