About the Society
International Medieval Society-Paris is a non-profit association that
welcomes international scholars of the Middle Ages in France and
promotes international exchange with French colleagues. To this end,
the IMS organizes monthly apéritifs in which scholars present their
research projects for discussion as well as an annual three-day
international symposium on a designated theme every June. Founded in
2003, the IMS has quickly grown both in size and in scope as it now
counts art and architectural historians, historians, musicologists, and
literary scholars from ten different countries among its members. In
2009, the IMS became officially affiliated with the Laboratoire de
médiévistique occidentale de Paris (LAMOP) of Paris I-Sorbonne. The
International Medieval Society-Paris is a cooperative association that
relies on the participation of its members to realize its goals.
