Description

In 2017, the special thematic strand of the Leeds International Medieval Congress will be 'Otherness'. Although otherness is often viewed as a subject for literary study, multidisciplinary approaches can also be applied to consider diverse subjects such as ethnicity, diversity, cultural inclusion/exclusion, geography, and theology. This roundtable discussion is intended to broaden the issues raised in the preceding session and to establish a conceptual framework for examining otherness, aiming to explore the subject from international and interdisciplinary angles, bringing together scholars from a range of backgrounds with the aim of identifying key areas of research for the future.
