Welcome: Premodern Studies at the University of Minnesota

The Center for Premodern Studies (CPS) was founded in July of 2021. It joins the communities and activities of the UMN Center for Medieval Studies, the Center for Early Modern History, and the Mellon-funded Consortium for the Study of the Premodern World.  We are in the process of reworking our web presence. Information about our programs and projects can currently be found on this website as well as that of Early Modern Studies and Medieval Studies.
