International Congress on Medieval Studies Virtual Exhibit – The 2020 Experience

Return to Home

Welcome to the virtual version of our 2020 Experience for the International Congress on Medieval Studies.

While the physical congress and exhibit have been canceled, we still want you to experience everything our authors and the Press and its imprints have been doing.

We’ve got Q&As with some of our authors, blog posts from others, and podcasts and videos with more. We also hope you enjoy our brand-new subject catalog and our Art of Reading photos.

To give you a sense of being there when you can’t we’re also offering one of those much-sought-after conference discount codes! If you see something on our Medieval Studies list that you just have to take home from your virtual browsing of our books on display enter 09EXP40 into the shopping cart. You’ll get 40 percent off!

Browse the books on display.
