This session proposes to bring together scholars working on any area of study that focuses on transmission, translation, or transformation in the Mabinogi including source studies, manuscript studies, linguistic analyses, history, theories of adaptation, comparative mythologies, cultural studies, scholarship about pedagogy and the Mabinogi, and literary criticism. The past few years have seen detailed and compelling scholarship on medieval Wales (notably Helen Fulton's 2012 collection on Urban Culture in Medieval Wales and Max Lieberman's 2014 study The Medieval March of Wales). Papers that engage with recent scholarship are especially encouraged.

Please send a 300-word abstract and a Participant Information Form (found here: http://wmich.edu/medieval/congress/submissions/index.html#PIF) to abecker@marygrove.edu by 15 September 2015.
