MAA News – Time to Renew

Medieval Academy memberships run from January – December, and so it is nearly time to renew your membership. Watch your mailbox for a renewal form in the coming weeks. You can also renew online after signing into our website with your username and password (contact us if you’ve lost track of those credentials).

We hope you’ll spend some time exploring our new and improved website. In response to survey responses and pageview analytics, we have redesigned the homepage and restructured the website to make the most-frequently-used features easier to find. In addition to direct links to Speculum and news about the Annual Meeting, the homepage also includes a conference calendar and – via our Twitter feed – other news of interest to medievalists such as job postings, grant opportunities, and Calls for Papers (such announcements continue to be found on our blog as well).

Members-only features of the website remain unchanged. After signing into your personal account, you can renew online or make a donation. Other members-only features include online access to the entire Speculum archive, a searchable Member Directory, and discounted subscriptions to JSTOR, IMB, HEB, and other bibliographical resources.

After you sign in, please take a few minutes to update your profile page so that members with similar interests can find you, and you can find them. Your profile page now includes an option to indicate racial/ethnic identity. This information will not be visible to other members, but it will help the Academy immensely as we strive to increase our understanding of member demographics and work to improve diversity and inclusivity in Medieval Studies. Additional resources will be added to the website in the coming months, so visit often for the latest updates!
