TUCEMEMS collaborates with people and organisations who are interested in researching topics on Pre- and Early Modern subjects.
The activities in TUCEMEMS are led by an executive board appointed by the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities. The members of the executive board are teachers and researchers working within the University of Turku. They represent a variety of the research fields covered by TUCEMEMS.
TUCEMEMS organises scholarly events and activities for its members as well as for the public. Our activities and events are open to anyone who is interested. TUCEMEMS activities comprise monthly talks, the Studia Generalia lecture series, scholarly conferences, and workshops. In addition, the centre organises different types of events with its partner institutions, both locally and nationally.
TUCEMEMS has its own publication series called Crossing Boundaries: Turku Medieval and Early Modern Studies, and the centre also publishes studies in cooperation with other scholarly publishers.
All researchers interested in Pre- and Early Modern studies are welcome to join us. As a member of TUCEMEMS, you will get to participate in our special activities, which offer great opportunities to network and advance your own research. As a member of TUCEMEMS, you will receive information on current topics and events via our TUCEMEMS weekly mail (Viikkoposti).
TUCEMEMS provides a study programme entitled ‘Prehistorical, Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern Studies’. It is worth between 25 to 60 ECTS, based on the student’s level of interest in its curricular offerings.
The Turku Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (TUCEMEMS) is a multidisciplinary research centre funded by the University of Turku.
