Founded forty years ago to provide medieval historians in the Midwest a place to discuss and present their research, the MMHC looks forward to the next forty years and seeks to expand its membership and encourage young scholars to take part. The conference prides itself on a friendly and collegial atmosphere that allows participants the opportunity for individual discussion and interaction. All sessions are plenary.
In addition to regular sessions, the MMHC has a tradition of long standing of devoting several sessions exclusively to graduate student research. Graduate students may register for the conference at a reduced rate and those who deliver papers will receive a stipend to help offset their expenses.
This year's plenary speaker will be Paul Freedman (Yale University), author of The Diocese of Vic: Tradition and Regeneration in Medieval Catalonia (1983); The Origins of Peasant Servitude in Medieval Catalonia (1991); Church, Law, and Society in Catalonia, 900-1500 (1994); and Images of the Medieval Peasant (1999), as well as numerous other studies.
