Centre for Medieval Literature (CML) is a Centre of Excellence founded in 2012 and funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The CML seeks to establish a cross-disciplinary theoretical framework for the study of medieval literature on a European scale.
The Centre is located at the University of Southern Denmark (Odense) and at the University of York and is run by prof. Lars Boje Mortensen (Centre leader, SDU), prof. Elizabeth Tyler (York), and professor MSO Christian Høgel (SDU). The CML furthermore consists of participants from York and Odense and of a wider group of European and North American scholars.
For an overview of what the CML does, see also this Prezi from February 2016.
The CML-sponsored Redes Petristas network launched its new website as well as sponsoring a workshop at the conference "Debuerit Habere Regnum: Desposing and Proclaiming Kings in the Middle Ages" in Lisbon this month.
