The Medieval Studies community in the Pioneer Valley is a thriving group of scholars and students who meet several times each year, usually at organized events of relevance to the study of the Middle Ages. The Five College Medieval Seminar sponsors several talks each year and Mt. Holyoke College is the host of the annual Ruth Dean Lecture in the fall. Institutions in the Valley have also underwritten single large gatherings, such as UMass' 2010 International Boccaccio Conference where more than 60 medievalists from six countries came together to share their research.
