lenticular in medievalstudies


Hello all,

I'm new here. I am considering applying for a PhD program dealing with Medieval Manuscripts. The topic is wide open and I'm curious if anyone can lead me in the right direction to topics that are of current interest in Medieval Studies?

I have reviewed many online exhibitions and I have also come up with a few topics only to research and find that a great deal has already been covered on that topic.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Another thing to consider about the UK now that I'm thinking about it is that their postdoc system (this is from secondhand anecdotal knowledge, so take it with that grain of salt) involves working on other folks' projects a lot rather than your own. I mention that only as a caveat should things take you in that direction.
Many of the projects I am going for are for projects where the topic is already defined, so I suppose that falls in line with what you mention. This one, however, has a mostly wide open topic. Just that its only focus is medieval manuscripts.
