[UPDATE] The Politics of Nature and Wilderness in the Middle Ages (45th Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo)

updated: 
Tuesday, July 7, 2009 - 2:18pm
Oregon Medieval English Literature Society

Jennifer Neville's "Representations of the Natural World in Old English Poetry" and Gillian Rudd's "Greenery: Ecocritical Readings of Late Medieval English Literature" are examples of the growing interest in ecocritical readings of medieval literature. The ways medieval writers thought about and interacted with nature and wilderness are important and relevant in regard to other conceptual frames and formulations that governed medieval thought and behavior. Papers in this panel will address the representations of nature in medieval texts as they pertained to and promoted political ideologies and programs of instruction or colonization. Papers on English and Continental literature are welcome.
