Session:
American Medieval: American Popular Culture in Medieval Film
42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI
May 10-13, 2007

Depictions of the "medieval" in film often have very little to do with
medieval culture. Instead, the medieval period often becomes a
metaphor for issues, anxieties, and themes that are both modern and
culturally/nationally situated. This panel explores American
cinematic constructions of the "medieval" in an effort to discuss
medievalism in terms of American cultural studies.
