-NeMLA 2018 in Pittsburgh, Emotional Nation, National Emotions in Medieval and Renaissance French Literature Recent scholarship has acknowledged the importance of emotions in the premodern and medieval periods, notably how they were an important part of community building, as well as of political, intellectual, and religious worlds. This panel will explore how emotions were used in literature about the nascent idea of the French nation. If the French kingdom was “naturally” built around the image of the sovereign, some events weakened and threatened its power, even causing profound institutional crises.

ACLA 2018 Seminar:
Medieval and Early Modern Encounters: Travel, Geography and Ethnography
Co-Organizers: Shirin A. Khanmohamadi (SFSU) and Christine Chism (UCLA)
In 1568, George Bannatyne fled Edinburgh to the countryside during a plague outbreak. To pass the time during his isolation, he complied an anthology of Scots literature that inevitably created an important collection indicative of a rich medieval and Early Modern Scottish poetic heritage. The Bannatyne Manuscript is one of the most prolific and thorough collections of medieval Scottish literature, providing a window into Scottish literary culture and medieval society. Divided into five sections based on content, the manuscript features poetry that explores theology, moral and philosophical themes, satire, gender and love, and allegories.
