Call for Proposals: International Medieval Research

This year over 2,000 individual papers were presented across nearly 750 sessions at the International Medieval Congress – our biggest programme ever.

If you saw some high-quality papers that you think could be worthy of publication, you are welcome to propose a volume for the International Medieval Research series.

The Institute for Medieval Studies produces the series in partnership with Brepols Publishers. Although the IMC does not publish its proceedings each year, International Medieval Research seeks to showcase research which is shared and developed at the IMC.

Anyone is eligible to propose a volume of 10-20 selected, edited papers, united around a common theme, that have been presented at the IMC. The person who makes the proposal should either be willing to edit the volume themselves, or nominate an editor. Papers should be between 5,000 and 8,000 words. Articles have been published in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

A total of 24 volumes have now been published, including:

  • IMR 24: Pleasure in the Middle Ages, Naama Cohen-Hanegbi and Piroska Nagy (eds.)
  • IMR 23: Miracles in Medieval Canonization Processes: Structures, Functions, and Methodologies, Christian Krötzl and Sari Katajala-Peltomaa (eds.)
  • IMR 22: Approaches to Poverty in Medieval Europe: Complexities, Contradictions, Transformations, c. 1100-1500, Sharon Farmer (ed.)
  • IMR 21: Travel and Mobilities in the Middle Ages: From the Atlantic to the Black Sea, Felicitas Schmieder and Marianne O’Doherty (eds.)

Find more information on every volume in the International Medieval Research series, as well as the Editorial Board, on the main IMC website.

We are always keen to hear new proposals from interested scholars. If you would like to propose a future volume or receive further information on the process, contact imrseries@leeds.ac.uk. The Editorial Board will consider an informal proposal first, before deciding whether to invite you to submit a formal proposal for consideration by Brepols.
