Icon time

Icon speaker
Katie Little, University of Colorado at Boulder, keynote speaker
Icon series
Medieval and Renaissance Studies Symposium

Scholars of the premodern face an increasingly difficult challenge in the modern academy: presenting medieval and early modern texts, materials, ideas, and histories in classrooms and institutions preoccupied to an unprecedented extent with the new and the now. This symposium will address what it means, today, to teach the premodern past responsibly and ethically.

The keynote speaker is Katie Little, Professor of English at University of Colorado at Boulder, who is currently developing a journal devoted to Chaucer and pedagogy. Her address, "Against Literariness," is at the end of the symposium on Saturday, 5:15-6:30.

Attendance is free and open to the public, but please register (for catering purposes) by March 5th at the symposium website, where the complete schedule may be viewed:
