The Witch in Medieval and Early-Modern Literature

 

In our supposedly disenchanted world, depictions of witches follow fairly standard aesthetic and ideological criteria the role of which is to maintain or, on the contrary, to challenge societal considerations regarding gender roles or normative female bodily depictions. But such standardization does not do justice to the heterogeneity of representations that pre-modern witches actually possessed.

I'll be submitting a proposal for a panel on *Medieval Neurodiversity* to the Annual meeting of the Canadian Society of Medievalists conference, to be held at the 2020 Congress in London, Ontario, at the University of Western Ontario, June 3-5.  Discussions could tie in to medieval disability studies in a number of ways, including:

 

- medieval mental states/mental health, queer minds, nonbinary minds, anxious minds

- depictions of radical introversion (e.g., Diogenes)

- mental complexity in Middle English (e.g., Hoccleve)

- medieval social anxiety (e.g., Merlin and social exile in Monmouth, de Boron, et al.)

From Ragnarok to Revelation, from the utopian proposals of Plato’s Republic to the dystopian vision of Huxley’s Brave New World, a prominent concern of human language and literature has always been to describe possible futures. Some of these visions of the future are cataclysmic, looking forward to a time when Heaven—or Mother Earth—will wipe the slate clean; others propose a more optimistic vision of progress. Recent films such as Interstellar or Tomorrowland have taken a middle way, suggesting that although humanity has recently fallen short of its promise, there still remains hope that we will be able to pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps.
