The ACMRS and MAP Joint Conference: Magic, Religion, and Science in the Global Middle Ages and Renaissance is an annual gathering of scholars, students, retirees and members of the general public interested in medieval and Renaissance studies. ACMRS is proud to announce that its 2019 conference will be held jointly with the Medieval Association of the Pacific. We welcome papers that explore any topic related to the study and teaching of the Middle Ages and Renaissance and especially those that focus on the general theme of “Magic, Religion, and Science in the Global Middle Ages and Renaissance.”
