Special Session: The Medieval Romance and the Human Senses

The purpose of this panel is to explore the uses of the senses (sight,
smell, taste, hearing, touch) in medieval romances. Any approach is welcome
that can help to illuminate perspectives on social or religious
practices/norms, ambiguities, anxieties, and so. Papers can focus on either
one particular human sense or provide a broader perspective on the uses, or
perhaps abuses, or omissions, of the human senses in the medieval romance.
