We host a biennial conference which brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to present and discuss their work, thus providing a forum for the exchange of ideas on the Medieval Mediterranean. Our next conference will be held in July 2019.
Membership of the society provides a range of benefits including copies of Al-Masāq delivered to your door and reduced rates for participation in our conferences.
These web pages introduce the Society and its peer-review journal: Al-Masāq: Journal of the Medieval Mediterranean, as well as providing details of our biennial conference series.
