The Medieval and Renaissance
Interdisciplinary Studies Project at Louisiana State University

M A R I S

A developmental project to promote interdisciplinary work in teaching and research within the Medieval and Renaissance Fields at LSU

Introduction to MARIS

  • The acronym MARIS stands for Medieval and Renaissance Interdisciplinary Studies, a developmental project at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. 
     

  • Begun with the assistance of a National Endowment for the Humanities Focus Grant and a Louisiana Board of Regents Enhancement Grant, the project encompasses a lecture and workshop series, the establishment of the Consortium of Medieval and Renaissance Scholars from Louisiana colleges and universities, and a monthly Faculty Forum in which faculty and graduate students may present their current research. 
     

  • The co-directors of the project, Maribel Dietz (maribel@lsu.edu) and Kirstin Noreen (knoree1@lsu.edu), are medievalists from the History Department and School of Art.  Eleven members of the LSU faculty from seven different departments have committed to support actively the project.
     

  • Additional goals for the project include the investigation and application of new technologies for teaching and research, and the offering of an undergraduate minor in Medieval and Renaissance Interdisciplinary Studies .
