The Maius Workshop is back virtually for the 2020–21 academic year!
Please join us for an informal welcome meeting, which will take place on Tuesday 24th November 2020, at 5:00 p.m. on Zoom.
This event is open to anyone interested in Hispanic cultures, widely considered: literature and language, history, geography, art and visual culture, medical humanities, music, etc., from Iberia, the Americas, and any other Spanish and Portuguese communities. We particularly welcome PhD students and early career researchers.
The Maius Workshop’s organisers, Costanza, Bert and Elizabeth, will introduce the group and events planned for the coming academic year. This will be an opportunity to meet people with similar research interests working at other universities and departments.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
The Maius Workshop is an interdisciplinary group that brings together graduate students and early-career scholars dealing with Hispanic art (broadly considered to include literature, theatre, music, etc.) and history from the Middle Ages to the Early Modern Period. The Maius Workshop is kindly supported by ARTES.
The first meeting of the Maius Workshop took place in October at the Warburg Institute. The Maius Workshop’s second meeting will take place on Monday 11 December 2017 from 6.00 to 7.30 pm at the Research Forum Seminar Room of the Courtauld Institute.
We hope attendees will share documents, images and problems from their research related to this topic. While some members have already volunteered to present their research, there are still a few spaces left for informal presentations of 5 to 10 minutes. If you would like to present material from your research, please get in touch with us by Friday 8 December.
If you are interested in presenting your evidence, please drop us an email by Friday 8 December. You can present your evidence in Powerpoint or handout format. If you would like us to print out your evidence to share with the group, please email it to us by Saturday 9. Secondary readings for discussion are also very welcome.
Otherwise, please come along for a lively discussion!

The first meeting of the Maius Workshop took place last Monday, 16 October, at the Warburg Institute. It was a well-attended event where we presented the aims of the research group, discussed our shared interests and needs and shared ideas about the most useful format for future sessions.
The Maius Workshop aims to bring together young researchers (MAs, PhDs and early career academics) working on Iberian and Latin American topics. It aims to create a collaborative network of researchers where shared problems and research obstacles can be discussed informally, and where personal encounters can foster interdisciplinary collaboration.
During our first meeting we decided that the network will:
- Share training resources and specific knowledge on e.g. archives, museum collections, languages, paleography…both in person during our meetings and online through our website.
- Offer an online platform for members to present themselves and their work on the web.
- Favour the creation of spin-off subject specific events to better cater to members’ very wid
- Run general meetings where members will have an opportunity to present problematic documents and objects from their current research in a friendly, collaborative and creative environment.
The first of these meetings, loosely titles ‘Sacred Encounters,’ will take place on 11 December (place TBC). Further information on this event will soon be published on our website. If you are interested in discussing your research at this event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Maius Workshop is an interdisciplinary group that brings together graduate students and early career scholars dealing with Hispanic art (broadly considered to include literature, theatre, music, etc.) and history from the Middle Ages to the Early Modern Period. The aim of the Maius Workshop is to encourage dialogue among specialists in different stages of their academic life and to provide a forum for discussing methods of information gathering and research news. The group is kindly supported by ARTES.
The workshop is named after the tenth-century painter of the Morgan Beatus manuscript as it wishes to create an interdisciplinary space where scholars of art and history can interact. Through a series of reading group meetings, the Workshop aims to bring together young researchers tackling the study of Hispanic culture and history and to create a strong network of specialists of Medieval and Early Modern Iberia and Latin America.
Thanks to the new connections that the group will create, the meetings will develop current research rather than present finished projects. The group’s activities are directed to the diffusion of the interest in Iberian and Latin American cultural creations, with the long-term aim of establishing a permanent community open to all students of Hispanic art and history.
The Maius Workshop’s first meeting will take place on Monday 16 October at 6 pm at the Warburg Institute. This will be an informal meeting and an opportunity to meet postgraduate researchers with similar interests, to discuss how these interests can be drawn together in a reading group setting. The meeting is open to MA, PhD and early career researchers. Refreshments will be provided.

The Red de Estudios Medievales Interdisciplinares is the result of a collaboration between scholars researching Medieval Art at various departments of the University of Compostela, other Galician and Portuguese universities and the Instituto de Estudos Gallegos “Padre Sarmiento” del CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas).
The group welcomes scholars in Spain and abroad, and runs various research activities, for example: cultural and formative site visits, training courses, events leading to multidisciplinary publications, website articles, European research projects.
