Boundary Crossings: the 2018 International Conference on Medievalism

Brock University, October 12-13, 2018

Steampunk meets the Renaissance faire at the 2018 International Conference on Medievalism! Hosted by Ann Howey and Martin Danahay at Brock University, October 12-13, 2018, our conference on “Boundary Crossings” will examine the intersections of medievalism and the neo-Victorian. We welcome papers on our conference theme, but also on all aspects of medievalism and boundary-crossing. See our Call for Papers for more details. The deadline for abstracts or session proposals is April 10, 2018.
