Medieval Association of the Midwest

MAM at the International Congress for Medieval Studies (ICMS)
(Kalamazoo, Michigan)

Alongside MAM's annual Fall meeting, the ICMS in May every year at Kalamazoo, Michigan, is the other premier opportunity for the Association's members to gather and exchange their stories. MAM holds two meetings: one for the executive council and one for the general membership (the "business" meeting). The business meeting offers a venue where those interested can learn about the Association's activities and plans, as well as to introduce ideas their own ideas for future MAM gatherings. At the meeting we hear about future MAM conferences, updates on the previous conference, as well as initiatives to bring the membership together electronically.

MAM is sponsoring several sessions at the 2022 Congress and co-sponsoring with the Pearl Poet Society - it is a great way to get to know us.
