Medieval Institute Publications of Western Michigan University publishes monographs and thematically coherent collections in several series across the range of late antique, medieval, and early modern studies. Medieval Institute Publication's areas of strength lie in the exploration of the concept of vernacularity in its myriad forms: not only literature in vernacular languages but ways in which vernacular culture can be explored across literature, art, architecture, and other source material. The publications variously explore reading practices and alternatives to literacy, translation and multilingualism, social and "class" identities, sedition and heresy, the nature of the commons, domestic architecture, everyday material culture, and devotional and popular beliefs. MIP also publishes several series of affordable classroom texts for the Consortium for the Teaching of the Middle Ages (TEAMS).
