Description

Since 2016, the conversation on race and ethnicity
in the Middle Ages has become increasingly important to
demonstrating a more nuanced understanding of medieval and modern
conceptions of race. We would like to extend this conversation to
include the disability perspective in order to explore
intersections between the body, ability, and race in the medieval
world. This workshop will expose scholars to medieval
texts that invite questions of race and disability and allow
participants to share scholarship-in-progress or discuss teaching
strategies. Tory V. Pearman
