MAA News – 87th Annual Meeting 2012

Under warm and sunny skies the Medieval Academy met for its 87th Annual Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri from 22-24 March 2012. The meeting was a busy and energetic gathering and offered fifty sessions, approximately 380 registered attendants, three plenary speakers (Caroline Bruzelius, Alice-Mary Talbot, and William Chester Jordan), and a CARA Plenary Session. The meeting’s interests were wide-ranging, from medieval piety to Irish and crusades studies and Byzantine topics. The receptions, banquet and business meeting were all well attended and at last count attendance was higher than anticipated. The meeting was hosted by the St. Louis University Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Our thanks to Tom Madden, Teresa Harvey, staff and grad students for a wonderful meeting. A full report will be published in the July issue of Speculum.
