MAA CARA Visiting Scholars

PilgrimsThe Medieval Academy of America's Committee on Centers and Regional Associations maintains a list of medievalists who are visiting North America from other countries. The purpose of the list is to provide a resource for those who would like to invite foreign scholars to deliver lectures on their campus but are unable to cover the expenses of international travel.

The current compiler of the list is Timothy C. Graham, Director of the Institute for Medieval Studies at the University of New Mexico (

To submit information for a scholar to be included on the current list, or for further details, please see the CARA Notification Form for Visiting Scholars, which can either be submitted electronically or on paper.

The information included in this list also appears in the Medieval Academy News. For further information on programs and publications for medievalists, visit the website of the Medieval Academy of America,
