The Society

The Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature exists to advance education by the encouragement and dissemination to the scholarly community and wider public of research on medieval languages and literature. The Society does this primarily through its publications – the journal, Medium Ævum, and its monograph series. In addition, the Society sponsors conferences and has established an essay prize.

The Society is a registered charity (reg. no.: 1130022). It is governed by its constitution and run by its Executive Committee. The Society has adopted a Conflict of Interest Policy which, in the interests of transparency, is also downloadable.
