Event description

Description

A partnership between the University of Notre Dame (London Global Gateway) and King's College London, 'Remembering the Middle Ages? Reception, Identity, Politics' asks speakers and attendees to consider how the concept of a 'cultural memory' of the Middle Ages can be useful (or not) in understanding how and why scholars, artists, readers, and others have resourced or imagined the Middle Ages, in any post-medieval period. We ask participants to interrogate the linguistic, material, and social networks that have been created by medieval things over time. Keynote speakers include Haruko Momma (Toronto) and Sarah Salih (KCL), and the event also includes a reading featuring poets Vahni Capildeo and Ian Duhig and chaired by Professor Clare Lees (Director of the Institute for English Studies). Further details are forthcoming at our website: http://sites.nd.edu/remembering-the-middle-ages.
