The Centre for Antique, Medieval, and Pre-Modern Studies has three primary goals: First, to help promote, support, and disseminate the research of its members in both individual and collaborative projects to the wider national and international academic community. Second, to create an academic community committed to the highest standards of collegiality and research. Third, to encourage and serve as a forum for outreach to the non-academic community. In meeting each of these goals the Centre is responsible to the academic community at NUI Galway, to students at NUI Galway, and to the international academic community.

Our research is founded in our individual disciplines and the advances that can be made through interdisciplinarity. The main themes of our research are Kingship, Lordship, and Society; Material Culture; Historiography; Philology; Texts and Manuscript Culture; Place-Making; Gender and Identity; Transmission and Reception of Texts; Languages and Cultures in contact; Editing Theory and Practice. In each of these areas of research, the members of the Centre adopt collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches that put them at the forefront of their fields.
