We are proud to announce that Bryn Mawr Medieval Review, a
sister publication of Bryn Mawr Classical Review (BMCR), is now
ready to receive subscription requests. Instructions below.

BMMR will publish timely reviews of current work in all
areas of medieval studies, a field it will interpret as broadly
as possible (chronologically, geographically, culturally, etc.).
We are eager to develop a large and diverse stable of reviewers
and to offer broad coverage of interesting current work from all
over the world. To that end, we will be assisted by a
distinguished editorial advisory board, who will themselves
review for us and help us find additional reviewers; but
expressions of interest from potential reviewers and of course
from authors and publishers wishing to submit review copies will
be welcomed by any of the editors listed above.

There will be no paper BMMR. Reviews will ship serially as
they are ready. Once a month, a "masthead" file will remind
readers of the makeup of the editorial staff and contain concise
instructions for subscribing, unsubscribing, back issues, and the
like. (Back issues will be available by ftp and gopher [with
WAIS indexing to facilitate searching] through the University of
Virginia's library e-text service, as is already the case for
BMCR.) There will also be a "Books Received" file shipped
monthly, with notes by books still unplaced for review -- to
encourage qualified readers to volunteer.

"Classical" and "Medieval" are not exclusive categories, and
so some reviews in appropriate topics will be shipped to both
BMCR and BMMR. To subscribe to both without duplication, readers
will wish to enroll in the separate listserv for BMR-L (Bryn Mawr
Reviews). The model used by BMCR and BMMR may well soon be
extended further to other fields, and there will always be a BMR
listing to allow subscription to all the sister publications at
once, as well as individual subscriptions by sub-field.

There will also be opportunity for author's replies,
discussion of earlier reviews, and well-conceived columns of
opinion on the current medieval scholarly scene. At the editors'
discretion, other informational material (e.g., conference
announcements) may also be included.

We are happy to report that the following scholars have
joined our ranks at the outset, to advise and guide us.

Patrick Geary, late of U. of Florida, now of UCLA
Stephen Jaeger, U. of Washington
Herbert Kessler, Johns Hopkins
(Art History)
Seth Lerer, Stanford
Keven Kiernan, U. of Kentucky
Alistair Minnis, York University
(Medieval Studies)
Stephen G. Nichols, Johns Hopkins
Michael Solomon, Emory
Robert Stacey, U. of Washington

We expect that others will join our board shortly.
