Description

Recent controversies surrounding the field of Medieval Studies have included discussions of how institutions such as the Medieval Academy of America (MAA) and the International Congress on Medieval Studies might expand their purview from traditional strengths in the cultures of north/northwestern Europe. In conjunction with my MAA Plenary Lecture on Marco Polo and the diversity of the Global Middle Ages, this is one of two interdisciplinary panels (drawing from History, Literature, and Art History) that will showcase work that is currently redefining some traditional parameters of Medieval Studies.
