Masters, Means & Methods: the (Liberal) Arts in the Medieval World
The 52nd Annual Midwest Medieval History Conference will take place on the campus of Augsburg College, in Minneapolis, MN, on October 18 to 19, 2013. The theme of this year’s conference concerns the transmission of knowledge, from masters to students, from practitioners to audience. It includes the liberal arts, the fine arts, and even the practical arts. Topics might include monastic as well as university education; the trivium and quadrivium; the history of science, music, mathematics, and dialectic; art history, especially the training of artists; the education of women; and professional training in guilds.
Conference registration is $148. The Saturday evening banquet is $45. Graduate students presenting at the conference should register using this form. They will be given their $100 honorarium later.

(NB: At Step 2 of registration, you must enter the “Attendee” [myself, etc.] AND “Employer” for every “Conference Registration” and “Banquet” reservation made.)
The official hotel for MMHC 2013 is the Hotel Minneapolis Metrodome. By the time of the conference, this hotel will transition to become the Courtyard by Marriott – Downtown Minneapolis. Until that happens, there are NO on-line reservations for the conference, and NO block of reserved rooms. Please book early.
To book your reservation, call the Hotel Minneapolis Metrodome directly at 612-333-4646 or 800-448-3663.
When you book your reservation, ask for the Augsburg corporate rate, which is $115.00 + tax per night (normally $158.00-$175.00).
This hotel is a 14-minute walk from campus, though we will also arrange shuttle service in the morning, at noon, and at the end of the day. This hotel is also where the banquet will be held on Saturday evening.
