Welcome to our virtual exhibit!
ICMS 2020 may have been canceled, but we still want to share our scholarship and research with you. We also very much wish to celebrate over ten wonderful years of our series ReFormations: Medieval and Early Modern with you. Therefore, we are delighted to bring our Medieval Studies exhibit directly to your screen!
From the desk of Stephen Little, Acquisitions Editor:
It’s with mixed feelings that I write this in the wake of the canceling of the 2020 International Congress on Medieval Studies. On the one hand, the UND Press has a longstanding tradition of driving up to Kalamazoo every year; and I have personally attended ever since I began working at the Press in 2010. It’s one of my favorite professional events that I look forward to annually, both for the intellectual feast found in the books and discussions, and for the comradery among all of us with a pre-modern bent. On the other hand, I applaud the prudence and decisiveness of the ICMS organizers for making the right call and helping to preserve our health and wellbeing during this time of risk. (Had the conference remained open, I suppose I could have attended while wearing a plague doctor mask—but fortunately that eventuality was avoided!)
This year in particular, my colleagues at the Press and I have been planning to celebrate over a decade of publications in our well-known and highly-regarded series, ReFormations: Medieval and Early Modern. In my time as the medieval studies editor here, the series has grown from two titles to nineteen currently in print, with several more projects well on their way to publication. Under the guidance of the august series editors—Sarah Beckwith and David Aers of Duke, and James Simpson of Harvard—ReFormations has welcomed a range of scholars both well-established and younger, both American and international. The closing of the conference just means we’ll be moving our celebrating online!
Our other areas of strength in medieval studies continue to develop, from the Conway Lecture series to gender studies. Furthermore, we are now expanding our publication focus to include Byzantium and the Mediterranean. One of our newest titles is Matthew Briel’s A Greek Thomist: Providence in Gennadios Scholarios, which treats a 15th-century theologian who straddled the intellectual line between east and west. In a time of increasing polarization in the modern world, we can look back to exempla from the past to guide us in finding paths to overcome dangerous divisions in the present. The past is not a dead past: It lives on as a treasure, a warning, and an inspiration.
If you have a book project that you think may fit our publication list, or if you have questions about academic publishing in general, I encourage you to get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay healthy, my friends!
