The Multicultural Middle Ages (Sept. 30, 2009 ; NEMLA Montreal April 7-11 2010)
The European Middle Ages are far from insular, as authors of the period repeatedly remind us. How are cross-cultural encounters and their consequent problems involving language difference or ethnic and religious others depicted? When are differences elided and when are they emphasized? This panel seeks papers exploring any aspect of cross-cultural connections as represented in medieval narratives.
41st Annual NEMLA convention in Montreal Quebec from April 7-11, 2010.
