Medieval Association of the Midwest

Xavier University was pleased to serve as host for MAM’s 28th annual conference over September 27-29, 2012.  Forty medievalists traveled to Cincinnati for the event, and under the guise of a conference  theme of “Knowing (in) the Middle Ages,” twenty-seven individual papers and three panels took place.  Several highlights marked the weekend, including Friday’s plenary lecture by Dr. Robert Fulk from Indiana University.  His talk, “Digital Philology,” was open to the Xavier community, and attendees included members of the “Digital Humanities” Faculty Learning Community that had recently formed.  The lecture was bookended by two equally well received events: a presentation by Xavier librarians Marty Ferrell and Alison Morgan in which they introduced and displayed Volume 1 of the St. John’s Bible currently on loan to Xavier; and a reception held in Mission and Identity’s Fenwick Room, during which two musicians from the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory performed a series of voice and lute compositions from the Middle Ages.

The Medieval Association of the Midwest (MAM) is a non-profit association of scholars devoted to the study of the Middle Ages. For more information, contact the website editor, Mickey Sweeney (
