Abstract

This panel culminates the ongoing scholarly research from the online project ‘The Medieval Student Experience’ hosted at Queen Mary, University of London. The project provides a platform of material on medieval student life, as well as a site of invaluable resources for researchers and students. Our three papers offer insights into the varied material relationships between university and the outside world – communities women, the local authorities and other ‘studia’. All three papers touch on aspects of the curriculum, privileges and relationships of our medieval predecessors.
