Modern portrayals of any aspect of Arthurian legends
Modern or classical portrayals of the Middle Ages in film or television
Medieval links to fantasy fiction, gaming, comics, video games, etc.
Middle Ages on the Internet
Teaching Medieval texts/themes to modern students
Presentations can be in the form of individual papers, panels, workshops, roundtables, or other formats. Presenters are encouraged to consider choosing an alternative format if it would better suit their topic.
