About the seminar: In this termly series, we will explore the various facets of ‘medievalism’, taken here to mean the post-medieval reception of phenomena understood as pertaining to or defining the medieval period, with papers drawn from a range of disciplines within the Humanities. Stories, concepts, practices, and records which are inspired by, which appropriate, and which follow on from the Middle Ages are being examined with various methodological preoccupations in many disciplines.
