The wealth of material found in the literature of the Middle Ages and 
Renaissance continues to attract modern audiences with new works in 
fiction, film, and other areas, whether through adaptation or 
incorporation of themes and characters. This is a call for papers or 
panels dealing with any aspect of medieval or renaissance representation 
in popular culture. Topics for this area include, but are not limited to 
the following:

-Modern portrayals of any aspect of Arthurian legends or Shakespeare

-Modern versions or adaptations of any other Medieval or Renaissance writer

-Modern investigations of historical figures such as Eleanor of 
Aquitaine, The Richards, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scotts

-Teaching medieval and renaissance texts to modern students

-Medieval or Renaissance links to fantasy fiction, gaming, comics, video 
games, etc.

-The Middle Ages or Renaissance on the Internet

-Renaissance fairs

Presentations can be in the form of individual papers, panels, 
workshops, roundtables, or other formats, and presenters are urged to 
consider choosing an alternative format if it would better suit their 
topic.
