The animal turn has become hugely influential in medieval scholarship over the last decade. However, the contributions of ecofeminism and queer ecology have often been side-lined. Nevertheless, scholars are increasingly finding these modes of analysis to offer useful ways of exploring the role of the animal in medieval romance texts.
This is to make two British Animal Studies Network announcements.
The first is that the cfp for 'Movements' - the next meeting which will be hosted by the University of Leeds on 22 and 23 November 2019 - is still open. Details of it are on the BASN website - www.britishanimalstudiesnetwork.org.uk/FutureMeetings/Movements.aspx
