About the Institute for Medieval Studies

The Institute for Medieval Studies is one of the major centres for Medieval Studies in the UK and home to a thriving community of more than 50 medievalists. We recently celebrated our 50th anniversary. We offer interdisciplinary teaching at postgraduate level with both masters and PhD courses.

We are a multidisciplinary Institute with academic staff from a range of subject areas across the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures at the University of Leeds.

International Medieval Bibliography

TheĀ International Medieval Bibliography (IMB), established in 1967, is the leading interdisciplinary bibliography of the Middle Ages. The IMB is produced by an editorial team at the University of Leeds and some 30 contributors world wide. It covers periodical literature and miscellany volumes published in Europe, North America, Australasia, Brazil, Japan and South Africa. The printed IMB appears twice a year, covering most recent publications.

Since its launch in 1967 this has proved to be an invaluable research tool, which is now also available online and in CD-ROM format to be used by researchers worldwide.

International Medieval Research

The IMS also acts as series editor for International Medieval Research (IMR), the series which publishes selected papers from the IMC. So far more than 20 IMR volumes have been produced.
