Description

“Courtly Elements in Epic” continues a long-time discussion among literary scholars about the points of intersection for epic and romance: recent published volumes have emphasized the fact that they are contemporary in French tradition, and that the two share certain characteristics. This session offers space to amplify that discussion, with examples for all areas to which the romance epic spread, and also to lesser-known works. Our sessions therefore offer opportunities to scholars of the romance epic across modern national lines and across disciplinary confines, joining research and teaching as major concerns of our profession.
