Description

This roundtable features short papers that explore ways in which instructors have moved beyond the traditional canon that publishers of British literature anthologies have created. Specifically, we welcome presentations that examine texts situated outside of the traditional/publisher-sanctioned medieval canon, the ways in which so-called non-canonical texts can be incorporated into the time period and the course, and how instructors address aspects of canonicity within the early survey.
