"The Child in Medieval Romance I-III" (Kalamazoo 2017)

Thursday, September 8, 2016 - 9:41am
52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 11-14, 2017, Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States

The medieval romance society is hosting for three sessions seeking to open up the complexities of romances’ engagement with children’s issues. How do romances problematize the relationships between children and adult society? Can children act to challenge the social order? In what sense can or should romances be understood as ‘children’s literature’? Is it possible to construct a child’s perspective? The sessions particularly invite approaches and methodologies drawn from non-traditional disciplines such as psychology, anthropology and emotions history. They aim to reconceptualise the ways in which children ‘read’ romance and forge new understandings of children’s engagement with medieval literary culture.

Since its first volume hit UK stores in 1997, Harry Potter has become a best-selling phenomenon that has forced readers and critics to reconsider how and what we read, and revolutionized the publishing industry from the bottom up.  With countless accolades and roughly 500 million English copies in print, eight feature films, with another on its way, and merchandise that continues to sell too well to be pulled from shelves, Harry Potter remains a fixed cultural icon 20 years on.

Cultural and Literary Transmission in the Global Middle Ages (Kalamazoo 2017)

Scholarship on the global Middle Ages has flourished in recent years, examining the role that a

global community played in the medieval period. Such work demonstrates the remarkable links

between various civilizations in the medieval period and the extent to which the Middle Ages truly

were a hotbed of trade. Recent scholarship has considered the cultural interactions of trade, literary

transmission, pilgrimage, religious conversion, explorers, colonization, and military expeditions. For

instance, literary scholars have shown that the story of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, traveled from

India through texts in Armenian, Arabic, Ethiopic, Georgian, Greek, Latin, Russian, and other versions,

In the past twenty years, scholarship on European literature of immigration has often fallen under the rubric of postcolonial studies, employing analytic lenses that are fundamentally rooted in the era of colonization (i.e., the Manichean colonizer/colonized binary of Fanon, the négritude of Aimé Césaire, the “hybridity,” and “mimicry” of Homi K. Bhabha, the different iterations of subalternity posited by the Subaltern Studies collective and Gayatri Spivak).
