MMLA 2023 Permanent Session: Old and Middle English Language and Literature

“Modern Meets Medieval: Scholars and the Public, Then and Now"

The General Call opens with an analogy between now-times and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, invoking an approach that is both medieval and modern by looking at how the arts, the academy, and general society should, can, and do interact. In that spirit, the general question for this panel is “what is the value of studying medieval history, culture, art, and/or literature in today’s world?”

In recent years, print culture scholars have injected unprecedented focus on print production and circulation in Black, working-class, indigenous, and Latinx reading communities in the U.S. Once a field with a reputation for patrician pursuits, book history has expanded to include previously ignored communities and print forms such as newspapers and popular magazines. However, studies of anticapitalist and antiracist print cultures have tended to focus on urban, northeastern publishing capitals such as New York and Boston at the expense of literary scenes from the Great Lakes to the Great Plains.
