Medieval Academy of America
Atlantic Mediæval Association
The Atlantic Mediæval Association is a small but vibrant community dedicated to fostering scholarly conversations and connections amongst mediævalists living and working in the North Atlantic region, particularly Atlantic Canada and New England. The annual Atlantic Mediæval Association conference encourages proposals in any relevant discipline, including history, theology, philosophy, literature in all vernacular languages and Latin, and the reception and use of the Middle Ages in later cultures.
CARMEN brings together scholars from universities and academic organizations who are actively involved in research on the Middle Ages (c. 400-1500 AD/CE). Accessing half of the global body of about 20,000 researchers, with important contributions from Europe, North America, East Asia, Australasia and Latin America, CARMEN successfully promotes the construction of major scholarly collaborative projects. Its Executive Group directs strategies, disseminates information, reports to national associations and major conferences, and organizes an annual meeting. It assists nascent projects to reach critical mass and tries to pro-actively shape research agendas.
Ménestrel held its first meeting on 5 June 1997. It was initiated by the Paris URFIST (Unité régionale de formation à l’information scientifique et technique) in order to develop a documentary network for medieval studies on the Internet. The workgroup was built around the editorial board of Le Médiéviste et l’Ordinateur (The Medievalist and the Computer), together with scholars and documentation specialists from various organizations.
