Papers from all disciplines are welcome. Preference is given to submissions closely related to the conference theme, but abstracts on any aspect of medieval studies are welcome.
Barbara H. Rosenwein, Professor of History at Loyola University Chicago, is the keynote speaker. The Illinois Medieval Association is co-sponsor of the Illinois Medieval Association Conference.
