Autumn School in Medieval Studies The Institute for Medieval Studies (IEM – NOVA FCSH) and the Municipality of Castelo de Vide are organizing a Fall School for twenty Master’s and PhD students in medieval studies, that will take place during the 6th and the 7th of October in Castelo de Vide. The goal of this initiative is to create a place for open debate and experience sharing in which the students can increase their knowledge and skillset, benefitting from the presence of renowned specialists from respected European universities, and promoting an interdisciplinary approach to the selected topic. The Fall School is structured by theoretical session followed by debates, research workshops with a hands-on approach and a study-visit to Castelo de Vide’s Historical Centre. Students can also present their research’s subject and methodology in poster format to be debated during the School, in a reserved session. Poster printing is supplied by the organization. The languages are Portuguese, Spanish and English. We are making all the efforts to make it safe to all participants, according to the national and international rules related to the prevention of COVID 19.
