About the Centre for Medieval Literature (CML)

The CML is based jointly in the Department of History at the University of Southern Denmark and the Department of English and Related Literature at the University of York. Our research is interdisciplinary and multilingual, combining literary study with history, history of art, history of science, and other disciplines. We cover a broad range of topics addressing texts within and, especially, beyond the established medieval literary canons. The CML works to establish theoretical models for the study of medieval literature on a European scale. Our research is organized in three main strands: Imperial Languages, Canon and Library, and Transformations and Translocations.
