Welcome to the website for MAP, the Medieval Association of the Pacific! We are an organization of university faculty, students, and independent scholars from around the Pacific Rim, including North America, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. Founded in 1966, MAP has a distinguished history of supporting interdisciplinary medieval studies.

MAP hosts an annual conference that is open to scholars working on any aspect of the global medieval world; one need not live in MAP's general target area to participate.

MAP also supports the development of emerging scholars with conference travel grants (Benton Award), and the Founders' Prize for the best graduate student papers delivered at the MAP conference.
