  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, MA
  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
