The Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Culture Conference will hold its annual conventio in Baltimore, MD, October 27-29, 2006.

The Middle Ages have and continue to provide a rich mine for retelling, adaptation and updating. Two of the most enduring legends of Western Civilization–King Arthur and Robin Hood–have their origins in the Middle Ages, as well as Beowulf, Joan of Arc, much of fantasy literature, D& D gaming and comic superheroes. In addition, the history of the period continues to fascinate, as seen in films such as Braveheart.

Topics for this area can include, but are not limited to:

–modern portrayals of any aspect of the Arthurian legends

Precision and Soul in Modernism
 
In 1922, Robert Musil wrote of a ³miscommunication between the intellect and
the soul.² ³We do not have too much intellect and too little soul², he
continued, ³but too little intellect in matters of the soul². This panel
focuses on the ways in which the intellect and the soul are made actively to
communicate in modernist texts in which the impersonal, the abstract, the
logical and the technological provide a means of accessing the poetic,
mystical, epiphanic and extraordinary aspects of the everyday real.
