The Medieval Studies Outreach series, which began in 1998, brings together UConn and ECE faculty, and other high school teachers in the state of Connecticut, who research and teach in the field of pre-modern European and Mediterranean history and culture. Since 2004 the program’s mission has been enhanced by making this a cooperative venture with the University of Connecticut’s Early College Experience Program.
