Exhibits Hall

The exhibits hall of the International Congress on Medieval Studies hosted by Western Michigan University boasts more than 70 exhibitors, including publishers, used book dealers and purveyors of medieval sundries.

Due to the ongoing health crisis, the 56th International Congress on Medieval Studies (2021) will be held virtually.

The 56th Congress will be live on the internet Monday through Saturday, May 10 to 15, 2021, with sessions and other activities scheduled at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m., and 7 p.m. EDT each of the six days. Sessions in which all participants have agreed to be live recorded will be recorded, and the recordings will be made available to Congress registrants for the two following weeks, Monday through Saturday, May 17 to 29. There also will be some pre-recorded special features that will be available for viewing for the entire three-week period (May 10 to 29).

For future in-person congresses
