The Midwest Medieval History Conference (MMHC) is an annual gathering of Medieval scholars that rotates between universities in the Greater Midwest region. The MMHC has traditionally attracted Historians more than other disciplines, but all scholars of the Middle Ages are welcome to participate in a weekend of focused scholarship.

The fifty-eighth annual meeting of the Midwest Medieval History Conference will be held on the campus of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN on September 20-21, 2019.

The conference will begin on Friday afternoon with graduate papers and a keynote by Anne E. Lester, John W. Baldwin and Jenny Jochens Associate Professor of Medieval History at Johns Hopkins University. She is the author of ​Creating Cistercian Nuns: The Women’s Religious Movement and Its Reform in Thirteenth-Century Champagne​ and has co-edited volumes on medieval materiality, religious movements, and crusades and memory. The remainder of Friday and Saturday’s program will feature scholarly papers on all aspects of medieval history, especially those related to this year’s theme: Medieval Religion(s), and an exhibit of manuscripts.
