Medieval Association of the Midwest

The Medieval Association of the Midwest

Welcome to the online home for the Medieval Association of the Midwest (MAM), a collection of professors, students, and other scholars who share a deep interest in the Middle Ages. MAM encourages scholarly communication on Medieval Studies through its meetings, sponsoring sessions at the International Congress for Medieval Studies, its journal Enarratio, and many other ways.

The office of the President is up for renewal in 2024-2025 

Please contact Mickey Sweeney if you have any questions about the position.  Please contact our secretary Amity Reading if you would like to self-nominate, or nominate others (please be sure to have that person's consent).  

Description of the position of President:

The president is responsible for organizing and attending meetings in which the business of MAM is accomplished and maintaining continuity over the years of presidency.  It entails working closely with the Board to ensure that what MAM has undertaken to execute is done in a fair and thoughtful way.  In my experience, the job of president has included efforts to transition to a zoom friendly format, updating what needs modernizing to function more effectively, and the development of a plan for future success and stability.  This work is ongoing.  


Looking forward to our joint MAM & Pearl Poet Leeds Session!
