In 1999, Kevin J. Harty's _The Reel Middle Ages: American, Western and Eastern European, Middle Eastern and Asian Films About Medieval Europe_ was published by McFarland and ushered in a renascence for the study of medieval subjects on film, television, and electronic games. The Virtual Society for the Study of Popular Culture and the Middle Ages seeks help in commemorating the fifteenth anniversary of this ground-breaking work.

If you are interested in helping us to further the study of the medieval on screen, please sign up to our moderated discussion list _Medieval Studies at the Movies_ at
http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/MSAM_DL/ , which will be re-launched later this year, and/or become a follower of our blog _Medieval Studies on Screen_ at
http://medievalstudiesonscreen.blogspot.com/ . Previous members of the discussion list are asked to contact the list moderator, as many accounts are now inactive.
