For the 50th International Congress on Medieval Studies, the Research Group had 2 sponsored and 3 co-sponsored Sessions. They build, in part, upon our 2014 Congress in our Anniversary Year.  The aims of the 2015 sessions are described in our 2015 Congress Call for Papers.

As before, we co-sponsored sessions with the Societas Magica (since 2006) and with the Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the University of Florida (since 2014). Like last year, we sponsored a celebratory Reception — now with both the Societas Magica and the Index of Christian Art at Princeton University.

For the first time, our Business Meeting was open to all and listed in the Congress Schedule, which presents the Program as a whole (see below).

Here we announce the events as accomplished, with their Posters. We also post the Abstracts of Papers.  A new Feature of our website this year are the
Indexed lists of the Authors of Abstracts for our Congress Sessions
By Author and
By Year.
