Audrey Becker

This session proposes to bring together scholars working on any area of study that focuses on transmission, translation, or transformation in the Mabinogi including source studies, manuscript studies, linguistic analyses, history, theories of adaptation, comparative mythologies, cultural studies, scholarship about pedagogy and the Mabinogi, and literary criticism. The past few years have seen detailed and compelling scholarship on medieval Wales (notably Helen Fulton's 2012 collection on Urban Culture in Medieval Wales and Max Lieberman's 2014 study The Medieval March of Wales). Papers that engage with recent scholarship are especially encouraged.

Call for Papers
Transnational Cityscapes

We invite essays for an upcoming collection that utilize transnational approaches to theorize city space. Accepted essays will offer literary and cultural analyses that encourage us to think of cities, in all of their complexity, as sites of transnational, transactional engagement. In taking this approach, we hope to demonstrate how cities, which are increasingly extending and challenging boundaries of place, provide sites for complicating our understandings of citizenship, nationality, and the nation.
