The International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo is going to be held virtually this year, but there are many AVISTA-related events to attend! The Congress is being held over Zoom; information and registration links may be found here: https://wmich.edu/medievalcongress

Registrants should watch for the full 2021 Congress website to go live on May 7th. The Congress organizers encourage those planning to attend to make sure they have downloaded the Zoom app (https://zoom.us/) in advance to familiarize themselves with its setup, and those who already use Zoom to make sure they have updated to the latest version. The free, basic Zoom plan should be fine for attendees.
