The Centre for Medieval Studies and the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies will soon be the hosts of the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America.
It will take place in downtown Toronto, on the St. George campus of the University of Toronto. For more information, please consult the meeting website.
There will be selected parts of the program held at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the closing plenary at Aga Khan Museum. There will also be an optional excursion to the oldest European settlement in Ontario (1615), the Jesuit mission of Sainte-Marie-Among-the-Hurons, and the Shrine of the Canadian Martyrs in Midland, Ontario.
The conference (held on 6-8 April 2017 and followed by the CARA meeting on 9 April) will feature three plenary speakers and over fifty concurrent sessions, including thematic threads such as ‘The Medieval Mediterranean,’ ‘Manuscript Studies,’ ‘Old English Studies’ and many others. Roundtable discussions will focus on topics such as K-12 education, diversity in the medieval studies classroom, compatible careers, and scholarly publication in the age of Open Access. Registration will begin on 6 February 2017 but you are encouraged to make hotel bookings as soon as possible (information on the conference website).
