Three staff, formerly of Ashgate, have joined MIP and Arc during January. This will allow MIP and Arc to expand rapidly so that the number of titles contracted will expand to 130 (and 200 when the European History list at partner Amsterdam UP is included). By 2019-20 the output will have risen to 130 too. These appointments mark a rapid growth in the range of our publications:
  • into Early Modern Studies, through the arrival of Erika Gaffney as Senior Acquisitions Editor, who developed the renowned Ashgate list in this field
  • into Reference Works in ancient, medieval, early modern periods and beyond; and into fields where humanities scholars are making links to professions and business: including cultural heritage and digital humanities. Dymphna Evans, who created the Ashgate reference portfolio, is responsible now for these fields
  • all supported by a new Marketing Director, Anne Nolan, who was formerly Marketing Director on the Board of Directors at Ashgate.
Dean, Keith M. Hearit, of the College of Arts and Science at Western Michigan University remarked recently, "I continue to hear positive things about progress at MIP. I'm encouraged and optimistic."

NEH Summer Institute
Teaching Beowulf in the Context of Old Norse-Icelandic Literature
The Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University is hosting a four-week NEH Summer Institute, directed by Dr. Jana K. Schulman, centered around the teaching and study of Beowulf and its historical and cultural background in conjunction with Old Norse-Icelandic literature. Participants will engage primary and secondary material related to Beowulf and Old Norse-Icelandic texts in translation and participate in discussions led by specialists in the field.  Folklore, religion, and material culture will all help inform participants about the world of gore and glory in which the literature is set.

Primarily intended for instructors of US undergraduate students, eligible applicants for this NEH Summer Institute include faculty members, graduate students, and independent scholars who are either citizens of the US and its territories or foreign nationals who have lived in the US for at least the last three years. Applications, contact information, and further details about the Summer Institute can be found here. Applications must be submitted by March 1, 2016.

TEAMS Countdown to Chaucerian Holiday

Last year's successful event will be repeated and is a great way for students to interact with the scholarly community. The countdown starts on February 14th, Valentine’s Day.
