The 91st Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America will take place on February 25-27 in Boston.
The program will feature three plenary speakers: Barbara Newman (President of the Medieval Academy of America, John Evans Professor of Latin and Professor of English, Religious Studies, and Classics, Northwestern University); William Noel (Director, Kislak Center for Special Collections, University of Pennsylvania); and Robin Fleming (Professor of History, Boston College, and a 2013 MacArthur Fellow). In addition, the program will include fifty concurrent sessions in a wide variety of formats and covering a broad array of disciplines. Threads include Digital Humanities, Carolingian Studies, the Eleventh Century, Unfinished Works, Lyric Transformations, Medieval Ecologies, and Monasticisms. The Digital Humanities thread will include a special session in which participants will be able to interact with several different DH projects.
The Annual Meeting will take place at the Hyatt Regency Boston in the downtown Theater District. For the closing reception – certain to be an unforgettable evening – we will gather at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, one of Boston’s greatest treasures. General information is available here. The Program will be available in December with registration and discounted hotel reservations available soon thereafter.
We hope you will join us for what is sure to be an excellent (and snow-free) Annual Meeting
