Begun in Winter 2010 by professors Cathy Sanok (English) and Hussein Fancy (History) as the Monday Medieval Brownbag, this series is now run as The Medieval Lunch by the Forum on Research in Medieval Studies (FoRMS), a Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop. FoRMS also holds reading group meetings throughout the academic year. Contact student coordinators Nicholas Holterman or Frank Espinosa for more information. Join us on Facebook.
