MAA News – Our Centennial is Coming!

Dear Colleagues,

I hope you all had a productive and relaxing summer!

You likely know by now that the Medieval Academy of America will celebrate its centennial in 2025. We have been thinking about this important milestone for several years, and we have several initiatives in the works:

1) Annual Meeting: Our 100th Annual Meeting will take place in Cambridge, Massachusetts on the campus of Harvard University, co-hosted by a consortium of Boston-area institutions. Mark your calendars for 20-23 March 2025, and join us for this very special Annual Meeting! The call for papers will be posted in early 2024, and more information about special events, exhibits, and funding opportunities associated with the meeting will be available soon.

2) Publications: Special issues of Speculum will commemorate the MAA’s Centennial (2025) and the journal’s 100th volume (2026).

3) Public Programming: Thanks to the leadership of former MAA President Thomas E. Dale and the Centennial Implementation Committee, we are very pleased to announce funding for Centennial Grants of up to $5,000 each supporting the planning and implementation of local events and projects celebrating and promoting medieval studies in education and the arts. Click here for more information and to apply!

Our Centennial presents us with important opportunities to critically engage with our past, consider our present, and imagine our future. We hope you will join us!

– Lisa
