Medieval Institute Publications at Western Michigan University publishes the TEAMS Varia series for TEAMS: Teaching Association for Medieval Studies.

Series introduction

The Varia series is designed for the use of both scholar and instructor, and contains works of great originality and import within the medieval canon. Often, these works (e.g., musical treatises or chivalric materials) do not fit neatly into the other TEAMS series—which cover such topics as late medieval English or German vernacular literature, historical documents and religious or secular commentaries; as such, Varia functions as a trove of eclectic sources and studies

Series editorial board

Proposals or completed manuscripts to be considered for publication by Medieval Institute Publications should be sent to Tyler Cloherty, acquisitions editor for the series, or the chair of the TEAMS editorial board, Russell Peck.
