Affect and emotion have long been staples of WPA scholarship, field stories, and lore. In fact, Diana George’s iconic collection, Kitchen Cooks, Plate Twirlers & Troubadours: Writing Program Administrators Tell Their Stories, includes several chapters dedicated to the emotional labor of WPAs, such as Mary Pinard’s “Surviving the Honeymoon: Bliss and Anxiety in a WPA’s First Year or Appreciating the Plate Twirler’s Art,” in which she discusses the isolation and pressure of a do-it-yourself approach, and Doug Hesse’s “The WPA as Father, Husband, Ex,” in which he discusses the roots and implications of his perpetual feeling of provisional access and his need to be a prover and a provider, all rooted in his working class background (47).

In 1568, George Bannatyne fled Edinburgh to the countryside during a plague outbreak. To pass the time during his isolation, he complied an anthology of Scots literature that inevitably created an important collection indicative of a rich medieval and Early Modern Scottish poetic heritage. The Bannatyne Manuscript is one of the most prolific and thorough collections of medieval Scottish literature, providing a window into Scottish literary culture and medieval society. Divided into five sections based on content, the manuscript features poetry that explores theology, moral and philosophical themes, satire, gender and love, and allegories.

Recent scholarship has noted the importance of viewing medieval manuscripts at many stages of their “lives”, not merely confined to the mechanics of their production and the immediate contexts of their creation, but also viewing them within each cultural context that they encountered throughout their existence. This session aims to apply this approach to manuscripts of medieval mystical, visionary, or prophetic/revelatory texts, examining their reception and use long after their original composition and the lives of their authors. These genres produced some of the most provocative and controversial texts of the Middle Ages, with often complicated reception histories.
