The object of the ICLS-NAB is to promote the study and criticism of the literature of courts and court-oriented cultures, particularly the medieval literature of Western Europe. The North American Branch actively encourages the involvement of those from all academic disciplines concerned with the study and teaching of courtly literature.

If you share our interests and your principal place of residence or professional activity is in North America or a country that has no ICLS branch, we invite you to become an active member of the ICLS-NAB.

(The Society encourages paper-free payment of membership dues.  However, you may instead print the 2017 membership form and follow the instructions if you prefer not to use PayPal. Please note that all checks must come from U.S. banks, but PayPal automatically converts other currencies.)
