Call for Papers
2022 Conference of the Southeastern Medieval Association
10-12 November in Birmingham, Alabama
Robin Hood and other medieval outlaws of fact and fiction engage in a variety of physical endeavors: archery, swordsmanship, wrestling, quarterstaff, hunting, even cross-dressing; they also pursue and escape (or seek to escape). When they fail to escape, their bodies may be tortured or killed in some manner. Living or dead, their bodies may also be objects, the subject of the gaze.
