After accomplishing the 2021 ICMS Online, with 5 Sponsored and Co-Sponsored Sessions, plus our Open Business Meeting, we produced the 2021 Congress Report, as we turned to preparations for the 2022 Congress.  We proposed Sessions, and received answers in stages.

Through the Confex system for the 2022 International Congress on Medieval Studies, we have learned that all but one of our proposed sessions have been accepted.

One of the accepted sessions resumes a series (“Medieval Writing Materials”) which a rejection for the 2015 Congress disrupted, after the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence sponsored a series of sessions at the 2011–2016 Congresses.  The interval between then and now is a long time to wait.  We had to turn to other subjects, as the momentum for their action not only gathered for the proposals to sponsor or co-sponsor them, but also found favor by the Congress Committee, so that it could become possible to move to the phase of the Call for Papers.  Now we can choose what to do with the subject not accepted this time around, rather than waiting for some other year or decade at the Congress.

And so, now, we announce the Call for Papers for the 2022 Congress.
