Medieval Monsters Now (Papers Session MAPACA 2020)

Submissions by 30 June 2020

The Association for the Advancement of Scholarship and Teaching of the Medieval in Popular Culture seeks submissions to round out a sponsored papers session to be included in the Medieval & Renaissance Area for the 2020 meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association to be held at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal, Princeton, New Jersey, from 5-7 November 2020. (Please note that the event is now likely to be held virtually.)

The Association for the Advancement of Scholarship and Teaching of the Medieval in Popular Culture is a community of scholars and enthusiasts organized to promote and foster research and discussion of representations of the medieval in post-medieval popular culture and mass media. We share the Medieval & Renaissance Area’s commitment to expanding the corpus of Medievalism Studies and welcome research on neglected genres and media of modern culture.

 

Medieval Monsters Now (Papers Session)

Following two past sessions on monsters and medievalism, the goal of this session is to explore further examples of how medieval monsters continue to have an impact on the modern world. We are especially interested in recent examples, but discussions of depictions from any post-medieval era are welcome.

 

Please send inquiries and paper proposals (paper title, 300-word abstract, A/V requests and a brief academic biography) to the organizers at medievalinpopularculture@gmail.com AND submit these materials into the official proposal site at https://mapaca.net/conference/about-conference.  Submissions are requested by 30 June 2020.

All presenters must be members of Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association or join for the conference. Further details on MAPACA can be accessed at https://mapaca.net/.

The Association for the Advancement of Scholarship and Teaching of the Medieval in Popular Culture maintains a variety of blogs and discussion lists. Details on these activities can be found at our blog, Making Medievalisms Matter, accessible at https://medievalinpopularculture.blogspot.com/.
