Medieval Institute Publications is based at Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo.
Since 1978 it has been publishing monographs and thematically coherent Medieval Institute Publications
collections in several series across the range of medieval studies.
Its areas of strength lie in vernacular cultures studied through literature and the creative arts; vernacular religion and belief-systems; and material culture, and social and daily life.

Medieval Institute Publications also publishes several series of affordable essential classroom texts for the Consortium for the Teaching of the Middle Ages (TEAMS).

The TEAMS Middle English Texts Series is designed to make available texts that occupy an important place in the literary and cultural canon but have not been readily obtainable in student editions. The focus of Middle English Texts is on Middle English literature adjacent to such major authors as Chaucer or Malory. The editions include glosses of difficult words and short introductions on the history of the work, its merits, points of topical interest and brief bibliographies.

The TEAMS Medieval German Texts in Bilingual Editions Series is designed for classroom use in German and medieval studies, as well as for the more advanced scholars in fields adjacent to that of German literature: the historian, Latinist, theologian or romanist who wishes to extend her or his reading and research across those largely artificial borders that still divide medievalists unnecessarily.

The TEAMS Commentary Series is designed for classroom use with a goal to make available to teachers and students useful examples of the vast tradition of medieval commentary on sacred scripture. The series includes English translations of works written in a number of medieval languages and from various centuries and religious traditions. The editions include short introductions which set the context and suggest the importance of each work.

The TEAMS Documents of Practice Series is designed for classroom use. Its goal is to make available to teachers and students volumes that contain translations of selected primary documents that illustrate various aspects of the life experience of medieval men and women. By making some of the matter of historical generalization available to students, the series enlivens efforts to understand what medieval people thought and felt as they moved through the major passages of their lives.

The TEAMS Secular Commentary Series provides modern English translations of medieval texts that analyse, annotate and explicate classical and vernacular works. Each volume of the series contains a critical introduction and select bibliography, a clear prose translation and notes designed to gloss difficult passages. The aim of the series is to support teaching in the broadest sense: the volumes are suitable for the classroom and serve as an aid for scholars and generalist readers across the full range of the humanities.

The TEAMS Varia Series is designed for the use of both scholar and instructor, and contains works of great originality and import within the medieval canon. Often, these works (e.g., musical treatises or chivalric materials) do not fit neatly into the other TEAMS series; as such, Varia functions as a trove of eclectic sources and studies
