This is a series of panels, part of the University of Rhode Island's annual "English Studies and the Uses of Popular Culture" conference, held this year October 26-27, 2001 in Kingston, RI.
This panels is deigned to explore how concepts, images, characters, individuals, themes, or histories from the Middle Ages interact with popular culture. How do we use popular culture to help us better understand, teach, or study the Middle Ages? Or vice-versa? Papers can examine cinematic versions of medieval stories, medieval imagery in video games, pop literature versions of Middle Ages history or characters, etc.
