Welcome to Virtual IMC 2020!

Drawing medievalists from around the world, the virtual International Medieval Congress 2020 (vIMC) is our first foray into the world of virtual conferencing. With over 500 speakers across 5 days, as well as virtual exhibitions, book and craft fairs, socialising and networking opportunities aplenty, we hope you enjoy this alternative to the in-person Congress.

vIMC will run from Monday 6 July – Friday 10 July 2020, 09.00-18.00 BST.
