Description

Our panel, Tricksters in Medieval and Early Modern Culture, will look at the Trickster as he appears in Wales, France, and Germany. We hope to shed light on how authors use various portrayals of the Trickster to symbolize their thoughts on social values, gender relations, and the act of writing, while crossing linguistic boundaries will also provoke thought about the Trickster in an interdisciplinary, yet still Medieval, context.
