Hosted by the Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University, the International Congress on Medieval Studies is an annual gathering of thousands of scholars interested in medieval studies. The Congress embraces the study of all aspects of Middle Ages, extending to into late antiquity and the early modern periods, including — but not limited to — history, language, literature, linguistics, art, archaeology, religion, science, medicine, music, drama, philosophy, gender, sexuality mysticism, and technology, as well as medievalism.
The 58th International Congress on Medieval Studies takes place Thursday, May 11, through Saturday, May 13, 2023.
The 58th International Congress on Medieval Studies will include traditional in-person sessions, virtual sessions via our online platform and some new blended-format sessions that make it possible for speakers to present and audiences to attend both in-person and online. We welcome proposals for sessions and papers both from scholars planning to attend ICMS on the ground here in Kalamazoo and those attending virtually from around the world.
The 57th International Congress on Medieval Studies takes place online Monday, May 9, through Saturday, May 14, 2022, followed by two weeks of recorded content available to registrants from Monday, May 16, through Saturday, May 28. Special events include a series of behind-the-scenes museum visits.
The program [will be] available … in February, and registration opens in March.
