CALL FOR PAPERS
The Medieval Popular Culture area
of the Popular Culture Association invites
abstracts for the next annual meeting:
APRIL 4 - 7, 2007
Boston Marriott Copley Place
Submissions are welcome on any aspect of popular culture
in the Middle Ages, as well as on medieval themes, motifs,
and medievalism in modern popular culture.
We are also soliciting submissions for the following panels:
TEACHING ROUNDTABLE: How to use popular culture
to teach the Middle Ages, including films, comics, novels
and other cultural products.
PROTEAN ARTHUR: Explore
the ever-popular Arthur from his roots to the 21st century.
What made him popular then—what keeps him going now?
MEDIEVAL COMICS (joint session with the Comic &
Comic Arts Area): Examine modern comics influenced
by the medieval world as well as reading medieval artifacts
as sequential pictorial narratives.
REIMAGING MEDIEVAL MUSIC: Consider how modern
performance requirements bring a very different context
to medieval music, as well as how modern reinterpretations
of medieval music by groups as varied as Värttinä and Amorphis
resituate the music.
MAGIC IN THE MIDDLE AGES
LORD OF THE RINGS, INKLINGS & MEDIEVALISMS
