"Movement through Arthurian Legend" 

Medievalism Transformed 2020 explores all historical and literary ideas relating to the theme of movement in the medieval world. How are texts re-invented across time? What role do texts play as cultural objects in their historical moment and beyond? How does a text engage with moving times, cultures, and space?

We invite papers relating to movement through Arthurian legend crossing all periods, borders, and historical and literary disciplines including but not limited to:

  • Travel, migration, and pilgrimage
  • Familial bonding
  • Life and death
  • Dreams versus reality
  • History of Emotions
  • Translation between languages and mediums (ekphrasis, illustration, music)
  • Movement of ideas through time, place, and space
  • Re-readings of the Arthurian legend through time

We welcome individual proposals for twenty-minute papers (max. 200 words). We also encourage three-person panel proposals (max. 300 words). Submissions should include a title as well as five keywords. Please send all submissions (as PDF attachments) tomedievalismtransformed@bangor.ac.uk.

We welcome applications from graduate students at any university.
