CALL FOR ESSAYS
GETTING MEDIEVAL ON TELEVISION: TELEVISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF MEDIEVAL THEMES FROM
ROAR TO THE TUDORS
ORGANIZED BY THE SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF POPULAR CULTURE AND THE MIDDLE AGES
PROPOSALS BY 9/1/08

Television, like feature films, has a long history of representing medieval themes, yet, unlike film,
these televisual medievalisms remain largely unexplored by medievalists. The intent of this
collection is to expand knowledge of these ephemeral examples of the medieval, and we invite
proposals that explore the corpus from the late antiquity of FOX-TV’s ROAR to the late Middle
Ages of Showcase’s THE TUDORS. We are especially interested in discussions of productions
created outside of North America. Please submit proposals by 1 September 2008; we anticipate
that completed papers will be due by 1 May 2009.

By 1 September 2008, please submit full contact information (name, address, phone/cell, and
email), titles, c.v., and abstracts of 300-500 words to the organizers. Address all inquiries and
proposals to the organizers at the following address:
