Mission of ISSM
The International Society for the Study of Medievalism (ISSM) is a community in which researchers are able to participate equally. ISSM understands that scholarship is practiced by individuals working in many different conditions and with varying degrees of support for their work. We value the involvement of researchers at all career stages, and across the full range of differences within the academy, and we especially welcome newcomers to our community. The organization aims to be a supportive and safe professional environment for all those interested in the study of medievalisms. ISSM supports members—especially those from communities traditionally marginalized by the academy, including but not limited to people of color, women, disabled people, LGBQTIA+ people, and members of all faiths—to share their research and develop professional networks within an environment that prizes inclusivity, generosity, and courtesy. ISSM refuses to accept bullying and harassment of any kind, whether intellectual, institutional, or personal.
