International Congress on Medieval Studies
Hosted by the Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University, the International Congress on Medieval Studies is an annual gathering of around 2,750 scholars interested in medieval studies.
The 55th International Congress on Medieval Studies takes place on the campus of Western Michigan University on May 7 through 10, 2020.
ABOUT THE CONGRESS
The congress features more than 550 sessions of papers, panel discussions, roundtables, workshops, demonstrations, performances, and poster sessions. There are also some 100 business meetings and receptions sponsored by learned societies, associations and institutions. The exhibits hall boasts nearly 70 exhibitors, including publishers, used book dealers and purveyors of medieval sundries. The congress lasts three and a half days, extending from Thursday morning, with sessions beginning at 10 a.m., until Sunday at noon.
CONGRESS TRAVEL AWARDS
The Congress Travel Awards are available to participants giving papers on any aspect of medieval studies in sponsored and special sessions. The intention of these awards is to support scholars from regions of the world underrepresented at past congresses. These include countries of the former Eastern Bloc, Latin America, Asia and Africa. All are eligible, with some preference toward emerging scholars. Those writing doctoral dissertations are also eligible. Award recipients are ineligible for another award until the fourth year after a successful application. There are three awards for each congress: one award of $500, which is presented at the congress, plus waiver of registration and room and board fees, and two awards that waive registration and room and board fees.
