Description

In the context of increasing institutional pressure faced by humanities programs since the 2008 financial meltdown, our panel will explore the ways that new modes of integrating theoretical inquiry with medieval studies can strengthen both pursuits. Considering that the study of theory, like medieval studies, is inherently interdisciplinary, we envision a forum in which scholars from a range of theoretical approaches and areas of specialization can report on recent practices and discuss new strategies, both for incorporating theoretical methodologies into the teaching of the Middle Ages, and for negotiating institutional changes in an era of ongoing crisis. Papers will address disciplinarity/interdisciplinarity, global medieval studies, pedagogy, and various institutional challenges and opportunities. Jessica A. Rosenfeld
