Description

The broad subject of “ending" engages interactions between forms of medieval writing and between modern disciplinary approaches. Papers could address such topics as the culture of death, eschatological endings, temporal endings, narrative endings, and their interactions. Although reading from the end is often associated with a method of medieval exegetical interpretation that promises coherence, the gerund “ending” also invokes a performative sense in which ending is an ongoing action or process. This session builds on a recent scholarly focus on form and history, aesthetics and practice.
