Kalamazoo 2020 - "Scottish Voices, Scottish Borders"

 

Borderland studies have escalated recently within academia, though the relationships between certain borders still remain relatively underexplored. One example is the medieval Anglo-Scottish border, particularly in terms of cross-cultural relationships. When the topic is explored, it is often from the perspective of how English cultural transmissions impacted Scottish arts. This panel’s goal is to explore the prevalence of distinct Scottish voices in cultural artifacts from both sides of the border, emphasizing the rich tradition and culture already established in Scotland during the Middle Ages.

Kalamazoo 2020 - "Celtic Fringe"

 

Since the initial Brexit vote in 2016, conversations about devolution and national identity in the British Isles have become popular in modern discourse. These dialogues are not new; since the Middle Ages, the relationship between regional and national identities has permeated politics, culture, literature, and history. However, much of the focus has been on English perspectives. This roundtable wishes to explore the interactions between Celtic regions—such as Wales, Ireland, Isle of Man, and Scotland—and how these relationships between Celtic groups in the Middle Ages informs the identity crises evident in Great Britain today.

Approaches to Hybridity in the Epic Genre

55th International Congress on Medieval Studies

            Epic genre could be seen as what Mary Louis Pratt calls a "contact zone", a space in which diverse cultures "meet, clash and grapple with each other, often in contexts of highly asymmetrical relations of power". It is a space where encounters give rise to new categories of gender, class, rule, and language. The concept of hybridity allows for the exploration of these spaces and voices that do not fit neatly into prescribed definitions.

The Problem of Epic (roundtable) @ ICMS 2020

Société Rencesvals American-Canadian Branch

Sunday, September 15, 2019

The Société Rencesvals was founded in 1955 to “promote the study of romance epics.” But what does it mean, today, to promote the study of a literary genre in which Europe, Christendom, victory, heroism and other valorized terms are too often defined in violent opposition to racial, religious, and cultural others? How do we handle the key concepts and narrative structures of the medieval epic—heroism, lineage, holy war, invasion, defense of the homeland—in the current cultural climate, and especially in the classroom? What kind of scholarly community exists, and how can we account for and move beyond that community's omissions, exclusions, blind spots?
