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
