Description

These seven succinct but provocative presentations focus upon what the Middle Ages can bring to an examination of some terms with meanings so diverse or contested they are nearly impossible to pin down. Our hope is to stage a lively conversation with ample audience participation, one that connects contemporary cultural issues to medieval materials and vice versa.
