Submissions for consideration for the Dionisius A. Agius Book Prize, the SMM journal prize, and the Simon Barton Conference prize will next be invited in 2018 and further details will be announced here.

Conference information

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.
