The year 2019 has begun, and it is time to renew your membership in the Medieval Academy of America for the current year if you have not already done so. You must be a member in good standing to apply for grants and fellowships given out by the Academy, to speak at the Medieval Academy Annual Meeting, or to participate in its governance.
Membership brings other benefits, such as:
– a subscription to Speculum, our quarterly journal
– online access to the entire Speculum archive
– access to our online member directory
– publication and database discounts through our website
Other memberships perquisites are listed here.
You can easily pay your dues and/or make a donation through the MAA website where, after you sign into your account, you can also adjust your membership category if necessary. Please consider supplementing your membership by becoming a Contributing or Sustaining member or by making a tax-deductible donation as part of your end-of-year giving. Your gift helps subsidize lower membership rates for student, contingent, and unaffiliated medievalists and also supports our grant-making programs.
You may also wish to remember the Academy with a bequest as a member of our Legacy Society (for more information, please contact the Executive Director).
With your help, the Academy increased its support of members in 2018, especially student, independent, and contingent scholars, through the numerous awards and fellowships offered annually. We sincerely hope that you will renew your valued membership in the Academy as we continue this work in 2019.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to working with you in 2019 and hope to see you at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy in beautiful Philadelphia (March 7-9).
David Wallace, President
Lisa Fagin Davis, Executive Director
