Description

Panelists are considering the productive tensions between spatial realities and individual interiority in a range of Middle English romances, the correspondence (or lack thereof) between imagined and “real” geographies, and how spiritual journeys are alternately frustrated and facilitated by physical journeys. They also explore why certain landscapes are conducive (or not) to penitence and prayer.
