Our website has a new address: wmich.edu/medievalpublications. But it is now enhanced by a new, sister website: http://arc-humanities.org/. This site offers better accessibility to search the 300 books published by Medieval Institute Publications and the thirty book series that we manage under various imprints. Please update any bookmarks that you may have for us.
The new searchable catalogue directs individuals straight to our Online Bookstore for heavily discounted purchases and librarians to the distribution agents we have for North America and the rest of the world respectively.

This year we will have contracted 100 new books which make us one of the top five publishers in Medieval Studies worldwide and by far the biggest in North America. We manage thirty series into which these books are slotted.
 
Send us your manuscript, or request a proposal form for a future publication. With the agreement of the relevant editorial board, after it has evaluated the proposal and ancillary materials, we can offer a contract that is conditional on a successful peer review. But as an author you are assured of a publisher, plus the support and mentoring that we and the board can offer you while you complete the writing process. Each of the three presses have their own special focal points (see details here).

The first video of this series features M.A. candidate Erin Lynch and Professor Luke Demaitre, School of Medicine, University of Virginia speaking about leprosy and medieval medicine.

While examining a farmer's field with a metal detector in Norfolk last December, Lucking stumbled upon a seventh-century burial of a woman found with jewelry and other grave goods.
