The Center for Medieval Studies regularly hosts scholars in one of two programs:

The Medieval Fellows program offers post-doctoral medievalists the opportunity to be affiliated with the Center for one to two semesters if they plan to reside in the New York City Area. Fellows are expected to attend Center events and participate in the intellectual life of the University during their residency.

Visiting Fellows can be pre- or post-doctoral medievalist scholars in residence in New York City for shorter periods and up to one year.

Applicants need only submit one application in order to be considered for both of the Fellows Programs.

Current Fellows

Jane Gilbert (Medieval Fellow, 2021-22) is Professor of Medieval Literature and Critical Theory at University College London, and works on medieval French and English literature. Her publications include Medieval French Literary Culture Abroad (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2020), co-authored with Simon Gaunt and William Burgwinkle. During her Fellowship she will be working on two articles relating to her current research project, which is on literary form in translation: one on the aggressive sonic effects of linguistic and formal code-switching, the other on the use of brackets in medieval verse manuscripts (‘poetic braces’).
