As medievalism has made its way into mainstream medieval studies, and the teaching of medievalist film alongside medieval texts has become commonplace, what new opportunities and challenges do scholars of medievalist film studies face? These shifts have prompted heated debates in recent years on the values and dangers of teaching Game of Thrones in medieval studies classes, the inadequate framing of medievalist films as adaptations in literature classes and as fiction in history classes, and the formal differences between cinematic and written texts. This roundtable seeks short presentations that address some aspect of this development in scholarship and teaching.

In recent years, the media has abounded with stories of serial killers. Esquiremagazine notes that 2019 has been a particularly ‘bumper year for [Ted] Bundy’, but numerous other news stories have maintained our perennial fascination with serial murderers.[i]Indeed, the death of Charles Manson (2017), the 2018 arrest and subsequent identification of Joseph James DeAngelo (known as the ‘original night stalker’ and, latterly, the Golden State Killer), and multiple anniversaries, including the Tate-LaBianca murders (50th) and Ted Bundy’s death (30th), have all kept serial killers at the forefront of the public imagination.

This panel aims to explore the (re)emergence of a new wave of queer cinema that, over the course of the past two decades, has given rise to auteurs and narratives that consider the complexity of queerness through and beyond matters related to visibility and acceptance. Different theoretical frameworks are welcome, and relevant comparative studies among American, European, and/or non-Western cinema are strongly encouraged.
