About Us

The Delaware Valley Medieval Association (DVMA) is made up of medievalists from New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland, and meets four times during the academic year. The purpose of the meetings, and the association in general, is to share members' current research and to make connections and forge relationships that support, sustain, and advocate for all aspects of medieval studies in the Delaware Valley region. Begun in 1979 as part of the Lilly-Pennsylvania Program, the DVMA was officially formed in 1983. The DVMA has served this community of outstanding medievalists for over thirty years.

The DVMA is affiliated with the Medieval Academy of America through its Standing Committee on Centers and Regional Associations (CARA).
