Pre-moderns. Started in 2014, the Premodern Group at UVA is a gathering of faculty and students who come together to explore salient issues of antiquity and the Middle Ages (variously construed) within a global context. We seek to advance understanding of the world before the advent of the modern era through cross-cultural conversation about society, modes of expression, philosophical systems, and belief. The Premodern Group aims to serve as a crossroads at which members of existing intellectual communities at the University can learn from one another in a fresh, innovative format. Current members come from various departments and fields, reaching from India and the Near East to Northern Europe and Greece and Rome, and Byzantium and the Ottoman Empire. All members of the University are invited to participate.

Having begun as a discussion group, we maintain a website to coordinate pre-modern course offerings, advertise lectures and other events of common interest to the group, and to host a blog for the sharing of resources and other discussion. Future collaborations envisioned include visiting speakers, a conference, seminars, and joint course development.
