Description - New Medieval Literatures by Wendy Scase

New Medieval Literatures Volume 7 spotlights methodologies and practices in medieval textual studies. Ten challenging new essays together explore contemporary medievalist practices in and beyond the academy; review and critique disciplinary cultures in medieval studies past and present; and experiment with new paradigms. As usual, the volume showcases work by leading scholars together with work by striking new voices. In this volume's analytical survey 'Actually existing Anglo-Saxon Studies', Clare Lees imagines alternatives to current disciplinary culture. Other essays are Wendy Scase, 'The Medievalist's Tale' (introduction); Stephanie Trigg, 'Walking through Cathedrals: Scholars, Pilgrims, and Medieval Tourists'; Steve Ellis, 'Framing the Father: Chaucer and Virginia Woolf'; Daniel Wakelin, 'William Worcester writes a History of his Reading'; Mishtooni Bose, 'Vernacular Philosophy and the Making of Orthodoxy in the Fifteenth Century'; Melissa Raine, '"Fals Flesch": Food and the Embodied Piety of Margery Kempe'; Lisa H. Cooper, 'Urban Utterances: Merchants, Artisans, and the Alphabet in Caxton's Dialogues in French and English'; Seeta Chaganti, '"A Form as Grecian Goldsmiths make": Enshrining Narrative in Chretien de Troyes's Cliges and the Stavelot Triptych'; and Christopher Cannon, 'Between the Old and the Middle of English'.
