As Kalamazoo is preparing to be overrun by medievalists, we at MIP are preparing to help you save some luggage fees by giving you a 20% discount for purchasing books through our online bookstore. Through June 15th use this discount code: CONGRESS2015 for 20% off ALL books!


CONGRESS 2015 (May 14–17, 2015)

You are very welcome to join both Medieval Institute Publications and the Goliardic Society of Western Michigan University for complimentary receptions.

The Goliard open-bar reception is on Thursday, 5:30pm in Bernhard Center 107.

Please also visit the open-bar reception hosted by MIP/TEAMS (The Consortium for the Teaching of the Middle Ages) on Thursday, 6pm in Valley III, Harrison 302.


Welcome to Spring in Kalamazoo! As happy as we are that the snow has finally melted, Spring is a bit confused on how it should behave!  Be prepared for overcast, humid, and occasionally rainy weather as you are running from Valley III to Fetzer to the Bernhard Center for sessions (and Wine Hour!).

*For the non-Americans, 55F is 12C and 84F is 29C (but remember to add in the humidity).


The Goliardic Society is the organization for graduate students at Western Michigan University who study the Middle Ages. Please visit the Goliard merchandise booth during Congress (Fox Lounge, Valley III). Proceeds fund the society's activities, including hosting guest speakers, developing teaching resources, and fostering community among Western's medievalists.


Medieval Institute Publications will host a blogging station in its booth area (Fox Lounge, Valley III). Come by to enjoy coffee and tea, comfortable chairs, and a place to charge your electronics. During session breaks we will be conducting video interviews with prospective authors. Use Twitter #MIPcyberscriptorium.

Interviews will be hosted by WMU Goliards and will be taking place at the MIP booth in the Exhibits Hall:

Thursday 9am with Luke Demaitre           Friday 9:30am with Susan Morrison
Thursday 11am with Columba Stewart     Friday 12pm with Robin Flemming
Thursday 12:30pm with Peter Darby        Friday 1:30pm with Marcus Bull

Pandemic Disease in the Medieval World: Rethinking the Black Death

 Edited by Monica H.Green

The first book to integrate researchers in the humanities with the social and physical sciences to synthesize how recent work in genetics, zoology, and epidemiology is providing fresh answers to crucial questions such as: Why and how did the pandemic happen in the first place? When and where did it begin? How was it sustained? What was its full geographic extent? And when did it really end?
