The Apollonian: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies
Vol. 1, Issue 2 | December 2014
FOCUS: Philosophy and Poetry
The Subject Beside Itself: Ecstasies of Juxtaposition
The proliferation of medievalism in popular culture - as Chaucer's Twitter account, Game of Thrones, and historical young adult novels set in Medieval Europe all attest - expresses varying ideas about what the Middle Ages could mean to our current historical moment. This panel seeks papers that explore contemporary ideas about the Middle Ages as they appear in a variety of popular culture venues. We especially welcome those that engage with global perspectives on the idea of the 'Middle Ages.'

Dealing with Academic Stress and Personal Crises
This board-sponsored roundtable aims to help NeMLA's members deal with academic stress and personal crises (e.g. divorce, death, serious health issues, caregiving, among other challenges). The goal of this roundtable is sharing helpful suggestions and strategies with the audience rather than telling personal stories. To ensure that participants represent different professional categories and that all types of crises are covered, interested participants are invited to submit their detailed 300- to 350-word proposals.
