In studying the work of the medieval Scottish makars, the consideration of the relationship between Scotland and England is a crucial part of establishing a distinctly Scottish expression of nationhood. Though there is much to discuss regarding the tensions that arise between these two countries in particular, this panel aims to explore the notion of difference within the British Isles on a broader scale, encouraging the study of resistance to the English literary hegemony, as articulated by voices of other bordering nations.

When Edward Said rooted orientalism’s “formal existence [in] the decision of the Church council of Vienna in 1312,” he invited medievalists to investigate their corpus in an effort to theorize the origin point of his new theoretical paradigm. Since this claim, scholars such as Sharon Kinoshita, Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, Geraldine Heng, Suzanne Conklin Akbari, and Kim Phillips, among many others, have questioned the role of orientalism in discourses of alterity, colonialism, imperialism, nationalism, and cross-cultural exchange in the Middle Ages.

This panel at the Medieval Colloquium at Sewanee (10-11 March 2017), sponsored by the International Piers Plowman Society, invites papers exploring the theme of borders and margins in William Langland’s Piers Plowman. Papers might address this question from any number of perspectives, including but not limited to questions of literary interpretation: e.g., how does the poem construe those at the margins of society (the poor, the disabled, the non-Christian others)?

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,
