Description

Werewolves and wolves appear with great frequency in medieval literature, folklore, fables, art, heraldry and elsewhere. The recent popularity of monster studies has prompted medieval scholars to reconsider our understanding of the werewolf, while the Animal Turn has resulted in significant new attention devoted to the lives and experiences of all animals, including wolves, during the Middle Ages. These sessions will provide an interdisciplinary forum for innovative approaches to werewolves, wolves, and intersections between the two.
