Description

In a 50th Congress session on "Medieval Iberian Studies in the Last Fifty Years", Sol Miguel-Prendes prompted substantial discussion when she asked from where future students and support for scholarship of medieval Spanish letters would come, given the relative scarcity of engaging pedagogical materials on medieval Iberia within undergraduate Spanish programs. Over the next days, several who had been attended the session responded by continuing discussions prompted by Miguel-Prendes' implicit challenge and beginning to develop ideas for online, anthology and writing projects to address the need to interest undergraduate students and young adults in medieval Spanish literature and culture. For this session, the North American Catalan Society (NACS) and the Ibero-Medieval Association of North America (IMANA) invites participants from the 50th Congress session and those who have begun relevant projects to participate in a roundtable & working group discussion to 1) review the state of the problem (e.g., perceived shortage of teaching materials), 2) report on projects already undertaken to address the issue, 3) explore obstacles or barriers (e.g., relevance to career advancement, anxiety about popularization), and 4) generate additional projects to encourage the interest of young adults and undergraduate students.
