Pedagogy of the Unpopular: Teaching the Medieval in the 21st-Century Classroom (Roundtable) - ICMS2022

Sometimes what we love is unpopular.  In the broadest sense, medieval studies face a cultural reckoning that sees us as irrelevant and unprofitable in contemporary higher education.  Yet, these generalizations ignore the rich worlds that exist in the literature, art, history, etc., that we love so much.  And so, how do we keep the medieval relevant to the 21st-Century student in order to revive our disciplines in ways that are both academically rigorous and imaginatively compelling?  This roundtable seeks presenters who have developed innovative and engaging courses, assignments, and classroom activities to share with other scholars to implement in their own courses.

We are particularly interested in trans/non-binary youth representation and authorship, but also those with queer, genderqueer, pansexual, intersex, and asexual identities.

An Introduction to Poetic Forms

Aimed primarily at undergraduate students, An Introduction to Poetic Forms (Routledge) offers specimen discussions of poems through the lens of form. While each of its essays does provide a standard definition of the form in question, their main objective is to provide readings of specific examples to illustrate how individual poets have deviated from or subverted those expectations usually associated with the form under discussion. While providing the most vital information on the most widely taught forms of poetry, then, this collection will very quickly demonstrate that counting syllables and naming rhyme schemes is not the be-all and end-all of our engagement with poetic forms.

Recent work on Shakespeare has shown the myriad ways in which the plays can be used productively to think through contemporary cultural and political issues. Books like Shakespeare and Latinidad (Trevor Boffone and Carla Della Gatta, eds.), Shakespeare and the Shades of Racism (Ruben Espinosa), Shakespeare and the 99% (Sharon O’Dair and Timothy Francisco, eds.), and Teaching Social Justice Through Shakespeare (Hilary Eklund and Wendy Beth Hyman, eds.) have demonstrated the relevance of Shakespeare to modern discourses of race, ethnicity, sexuality, colonialism, bilingualism, economic justice, social justice, education, and politics.
