of approaches to and examples of devotional readers, reading or
reception in the later Middle Ages.

culturally/nationally situated. This panel explores American
cinematic constructions of the "medieval" in an effort to discuss
medievalism in terms of American cultural studies.

its analysis of the medieval world. Topics may include, but are
certainly not limited to, depictions of disability in medieval
literature, historical analyses, theoretical inquiries, etc. I will be
