Description

Medievalism and medieval studies are notoriously split by the academy: one is considered serious study and the other is dismissed as amateur scholarship or fandom. But what of those who study medievalism in the academy today? Are these approaches as marginalized as they were decades ago, or do they hold new promise for the larger field of medieval studies? This round table will feature short papers with multiple perspectives on studying medievalism and participants hope for a rich discussion with members of the audience.
