This panel at the Medieval Colloquium at Sewanee (10-11 March 2017), sponsored by the International Piers Plowman Society, invites papers exploring the theme of borders and margins in William Langland’s Piers Plowman. Papers might address this question from any number of perspectives, including but not limited to questions of literary interpretation: e.g., how does the poem construe those at the margins of society (the poor, the disabled, the non-Christian others)? Or how does the poem establish boundaries between its different genres or modes (e.g., romance, allegory, didacticism, preaching)?
