Session for the 2015 Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Saint Louis University, June 15-17: It has been about half a century since C.S. Lewis' The Discarded Image was published (1964), and the time seems ripe to look into its legacy, past and ongoing, as well as the legacy of Lewis' literary scholarship at large. With the constantly shifting critical landscape in medieval studies, especially the recent rise in new critical perspectives (e.g. disability studies, theories of the monstrous, etc.), a past work of medieval scholarship such as Lewis' can seem like a product of its own time more than a seminal advance in medieval studies.

Circling Our Wagons Conference: Stories and Histories of Hip Hop
April 16-19, 2015
Rap music is a black cultural expression that prioritizes black voices from the margins of urban America. Rap music is a form of rhymed storytelling accompanied by highly rhythmic, electronically based music. It began in the mid-1970s in the South Bronx in New York City as a part of hip hop, an African-American and Afro-Caribbean youth culture composed of graffiti, breakdancing, and rap music. From the outset, rap music has articulated the pleasures and problems of urban black life in contemporary America.
