Travel is an important activity in the Middle Ages, and, therefore, plays a large role in the literature of the period. Pilgrimages, merchant trade, ecclesial and diplomatic missions, etc. are but a few cultural and political activities that involve travel and are described in the many genres of medieval literature. This panel seeks to discuss the various artistic ways travel is described in medieval literature and how we can come to understand, what we can learn and appreciate about the nature and importance of travel in medieval culture. Papers on travel found in any literary genre of this period are most welcome. Please send via email a 300-word proposal by May 30 to Dr.

Modernism often gets a bad rap from defenders of the natural environment: in its connections to industrial modernity, the machine age, and urbanization, its aesthetic projects are often seen in opposition to sustainable ecological practice. This panel aims to complicate such binaries by considering twentieth-century representations of and narratives about the built environment, particularly those that see possibilities for alliances between such constructed spaces and the biotic, nonhuman world. How do built environments force us to re-imagine the spaces of modernity in ways that undo such oppositions as nature/culture, organic/mechanical, green space/brown space?
