Foremothers Fund

The Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship announces the creation of The Foremothers Fund as a way to honor teachers, mentors, colleagues, and friends who have played an important role, not only in our own lives, but in bringing to light the lives of medieval women.  Each year at Kalamazoo we celebrate the work of a recently retired scholar through sessions devoted to her or his interests and in a luncheon.  Contributions to The Foremothers Fund will not only support these activities, but allow us to give travel grants to graduate students who work in medieval feminist studies to attend Kalamazoo to experience the fellowship that is the hallmark of the SMFS.  No gift is too small, but the effect will ensure that our mission is passed on to a younger generation of scholars.
