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.

The five-day annual event, organised and administered by the Institute of Medieval Studies at the University of Leeds, will host 500 speakers from 60 countries and 3,200 online attendees, with all sessions and fringe events accessed virtually.

The extensive selection of online fringe activities will range from a pub quiz to a Cyrillic calligraphy session and online film tours, as well as manuscript workshops, virtual banquets and storytelling events.  

There will even be a virtual disco, hosted by local community internet radio station South Leeds Radio, with the playlist available for delegates around the world to enjoy.
