Teaching Over-looked, Non-Traditional Medieval & Renaissance Texts

updated: 
Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 8:19am
This Rough Magic / www.thisroughmagic.org

All too often, the same canonical works and authors find their way into Medieval and Renaissance Literature courses. While canonical literature is extremely important and not to be avoided, a great many authors (i.e., Cyril Tourneur) and texts (i.e., Life of St. Margaret of Antioch) go un-noticed. We are therefore looking for short essays that encourage readers to try non-traditional, over-looked, teachable texts inside their classrooms. Essays should answer the following:

•How can the author/text in question be used in a particular class?

•What audience (undergraduate/graduate) should the author/text in question be geared towards?

•What themes/ideas can one cover using the author/text in question?
