Description: 

The Midwest Medieval History Conference was founded in 1962 as an all-plenary conference to encourage and support collegial sharing of research in our region.

We are pleased to announce that after over thirty years we will be returning to the Chicago area. We will hold our 53rd annual Midwest Medieval History Conference at Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois. The conference will be held on October 17-18, 2014. Conference attendees will be able to stay at the Carleton Hotel in nearby Oak Park, IL.

Our keynote speaker is Barbara Rosenwein of Loyola University Chicago. We will organize one session on the history of emotions in honor of her outstanding contributions in that field. We invite historians to submit paper proposals for this session or any other field of medieval history related to your current research. We will also entertain proposals for presentations on the scholarship of teaching and learning as it relates to medieval history. We also welcome paper proposals from those who are pursuing graduate degrees in medieval history. Six graduate student presenters will be awarded stipends of $150 to help defray travel and conference costs.

Please complete the form below to submit an abstract and short curriculum vitae to the organizers. The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2014. Selections will be announced by September 1.

If you have questions about the conference or local arrangements, please email John Lomax
(j-lomax@onu.edu) and David Perry (dperry@dom.edu).
