Special Events

Since 2005, the WLU Medieval Studies Program has hosted a number of
special events with financial support from the Dean of the Faculty of
Arts, the Dean of the Faculty of Music, the Vice-President: Academic, and the Academic Events Office.  
These have included our annual day-long celebration of Medieval Studies
at Laurier during the Fall term (the Medieval Day Colloquium), our
annual Distinguished Visiting Speaker series during the Winter term, and
various other events both on-campus and in the community. The Medieval
Day Colloquia have included featured guest speakers, research
presentations by WLU faculty and colleagues from other local
universities, research presentations by students, and other
presentations and activities, including musical and dramatic performances.

In addition, the Medieval Students' Teaching Experience Program
(MedSTEP) has received external funding from The History Education
Network/Histoire et ducation en Rseau (THEN/HiER).
