Research at the IMS

The Institute fosters many interdisciplinary, international and collaborative research projects, linking up scholars within the Faculty of Arts, the University of Leeds and the wider academic community. The IMS works closely with bodies such as the Royal Armouries, English Heritage, Wellcome Trust, the Battlefield Trust, the Landscape Research Centre, Leeds City Museums and many others.

In addition, the International Medieval Bibliography and International Medieval Congress involve many Leeds-based researchers as well as scholars from around the world. Individual research projects can be found by referring to individual staff pages.
