Description

This panel invites the close examination of medieval loneliness, solitude, isolation, and seclusion. Does loneliness register as an affect in medieval English writing? How and where does the medieval text reveal the effects of seclusion on its subjects? Under what conditions might solitude have been sought, desired, or coveted; and conversely, what were the discourses that marked isolation as fraught?
