All events—live on the internet, recorded, and pre-recorded—of the 56th International Congress on Medieval Studies (May 10-15, 2021), hosted by Western Michigan University's Medieval Institute, as well as the virtual exhibits hall and the virtual talent show, are available exclusively to those registered for the Congress.

Online registration for the 56th congress extends until Saturday, May 29, the last day when recorded content is available for viewing.

Registration rates for the 56th congress (2021) are:

  • $160 (annual income $60,000 and above)
  • $100 (annual income $40,000-$59,999)
  • $60 (students and annual income below $40,000)
  • $5 (Kalamazoo residents)

We recognize that the pandemic has affected many—the very fact that we're virtual is testament to that—and have thus reduced registration fees for the 2021 International Congress on Medieval Studies to the extent that we are able. We hope that such a reduction will allow you to join us.


We can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover for credit card payments, but we cannot process electronic transfer of funds, cash, or checks.


For the 2021 congress, refunds for registration fees are made only if we receive notification of cancellation by Monday, April 26. No refunds are made after that date.
