The 2012 Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America will be held on March 22-24 on the campus of Saint Louis University, nestled in the heart of midtown Saint Louis, Missouri. It will be hosted by the Saint Louis University Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Founded in 1818, Saint Louis University is the oldest university west of the Mississippi and the second-oldest Jesuit university in America. As one might expect from a city named for a medieval king, there is much to recommend it to medievalists. The university has extensive manuscript and rare-book holdings and is also the home of the Knights of Columbus Vatican Film Library, a microfilm copy of thousands of manuscripts from the Vatican Library in Rome. 

This year's meeting will feature fifty concurrent sessions from a wide range of disciplines and approaches. Plenary speakers will include William Chester Jordan (Princeton University and President of the MAA Fellows), Caroline A. Bruzelius (Duke University), and MAA President Alice-Mary Talbot (Dumbarton Oaks). All sessions, lectures, meetings, and receptions will be held in Busch Student Center and DuBourg Hall on the Saint Louis University north campus. Hotel accommodations are provided at the nearby Chase Park Plaza, an elegant and fully-restored hotel built during the 1920s. It is within walking distance of an array of excellent restaurants and bars in the Central West End district as well as Forest Park, the site of the 1904 World's Fair. The Chase Park Plaza has its own selection of restaurants too, as well as assorted bars and even a movie theater. It offers pools, recreation facilities, and complete spa services.
