CFP: Article Submissions for Volume--The Canterbury Tales Revisited--
21st Century Interpretations

In this volume we will seek to relinquish a false attempt
to "reconstruct" Chaucer's audience, an impossible task at best, or to
produce
an "authentically" medieval reading, but instead resituate the
Canterbury Tales within a context of modern readership and
scholarship, responding to the texts as 21st readers, recognizing
there is no way to escape the fact that we are colored by our own
period.
