The Association Villard de Honnecourt for the Interdisciplinary Study of Technology, Science, and Art

AVISTA unites medievalists interested in architecture, machines, design, numismatics, and much more so that we can interact and develop the fields of medieval technology, science, and art. If you are a fan of books like The Medieval MachineThe Cathedral Builders, or  Medieval Technology and Social Change, then AVISTA is for you. Our annual meeting takes place at the International Congress on Medieval Studies, held at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo each May, where we sponsor sessions on various themes. Brill publishes a peer-reviewed book series affiliated with AVISTA and additional conference sessions and special events related to our members’ research interests.
