Machaut-related paper, even if it seems not to fit perfectly into one
of these topics.
See our Kalamazoo page
for more information on last year's sessions and our business meeting.
General information on the conference, including a complete program,
can be found here.
The IMS seeks to sponsor sessions at the Leeds International
Medieval Congress held each July. Anyone interested in presenting a
Machaut-related paper or session under our auspices should contact Jennifer Bain. The
International Medieval Congress is, as their administration says, the
largest gathering of medievalists in Europe, and therefore functions as
a sort of European counterpart to the International Conference on
Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo each May. For more information on
the Leeds conference, look here.
The Sarah Jane Williams Award
The International Machaut Society sponsors the Sarah Jane
Williams Award to honor the Society's founder and first president. This
award, carrying a prize of $500, will be given every other year to
promote the study, criticism, performance, research, and exchange of
ideas related to all aspects of the works of Guillaume de Machaut. For
more information, look here.
