Accessing Avalon Today: Best Practices for Connecting Contemporary Readers to Arthurian Texts Online
Sponsored by the Alliance for the Promotion of Research on the Matter of Britain
Contact: Michael A Torregrossa (KingArthurForever2000@gmail.com)
The Matter of Britain is a living tradition with new texts produced each year in a variety of media and genres. The vastness, vitality, and adaptability of the corpus, from medieval to modern, allow for an incredibly rich potential for scholarship and teaching. However, the availability and cost of many items greatly restrict what can actually be accessed by us and our students. In this session, we’d like to start a conversation related to the digital humanities about Arthurian works that are open-access materials or open-educational resources and how they can best be used in the classroom and research.
Please submit paper proposal into the Congress’s Confex system accessible at the Call for Papers page for the event (at https://wmich.edu/medievalcongress/call). Scroll down to select “Make a Proposal,” and, once on that page, select our session under the list of “Sponsored and Special Sessions of Papers”.
Submission must be made no later than 15 September 2022.
