Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS)
Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS) at UF is an interdisciplinary forum for the study of medieval and early modern culture and its influences on the modern world. This approach addresses the distinctive forms of cultural organization in the Middle Ages and Early Modern periods; the study necessarily crosses departmental boundaries.

The James J. Paxson Memorial Travel Grant for Scholars of Limited Funds
The BABEL Working Group and postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural studies, have established the James J. Paxson Memorial Travel Grant for Scholars of Limited Funds. The grant, in memory of the late U.F. English professor, was made possible by an initial gift from one of Professor Paxson’s former students at the University of Florida, Mead Bowen.
This grant of $1,000 will cover travel costs, registration fees, lodging and other expenses for one scholar who would otherwise find it a financial hardship to present his or her work at the International Congress on Medieval Studies.
Applicants for 2014 should send a brief prospectus of their accepted ICMS paper (350-500 words), a statement of financial need, and a brief c.v. to Eileen Joy at: firstname.lastname@example.org by MARCH 15, 2014. The recipient of the grant will be announced by or before APRIL 1.
