The Centre for Mediaeval and Early Modern Law and Literature (CMEMLL) is a forum that welcomes all scholars whose exploration in other fields of historical and literary research involves them in encounters with legal concepts and texts. Founded at the University of St Andrews in 2011, from September 2016 CMEMLL will become a collaborative forum with organisers at the universities of St Andrews, Oxford, and Cambridge.
CMEMLL draws on the expertise of scholars from English and History who have published extensively at the intersections of legal history, social history, and literary criticism. It aims to provide an intellectual and social focus for academics and postgraduates working at these disciplinary boundaries, and to maintain research links with researchers in a number of Literature and History Departments and Law Schools throughout the world.
The Centre hosts a regular law and literature reading group, open to all academics and postgraduate students, as well as other events and conferences.
