This interdisciplinary series is devoted to that millennium of Western culture extending from the fall of Rome to the rise of Humanism that we call the middle ages. The series promotes scholarship based on the study of primary sources and artifacts within their social and discursive contexts. With its emphasis on cultural studies, the series favors research that considers how the psychological, ideological, and spiritual dimensions of the medieval world converge in expressions of individual experience and in perceptions of material events. So too, the series welcomes the study of the semiotic and discursive practices of medieval culture, or what we might call the theatricality of power within the social group. This implies historical approaches open to the insights of such modern disciplines as literary criticism, art history, gender studies, the history of spirituality, and psychoanalysis as aids in grasping more lucidly the dynamism of the medieval world.

The series favors original scholarship by individual scholars, but also welcomes carefully presented translations of important medieval writings, as well as modern commentaries on medieval works that summon new methods of analysis. So too, the series will occasionally publish English translations of important modern scholarship written in foreign languages. The publication of printed books is the principal activity of this series, but the editors and the University of Michigan Press intend to explore new technological resources to supplement the diffusion of new scholarly knowledge.
