The International Machaut Society will sponsor three sessions at the 45t International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, Michigan, 13-16 May 2010:

  • Contextualizing Machaut
  • International Machaut Society, Twenty-Five Years:  Then and Now (roundtable)
  • Digital Resources and the Study of Machaut (roundtable)

Proposals for papers (20 minutes) should be sent by 15 September 2009 to:
Jennifer Bain
Dalhousie University
Department of Music
6101 University Avenue
Halifax, NS  B3H 4R2
fax:  902/494-2801

As always, please feel free to send us a proposal for a 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.
