The Middle Ages continue to live on in the post-medieval world, creatively re-imagined and restored in the art, architecture, literature, culture, and ideologies of individual and collective imaginations. London – a city whose medieval history clashes evocatively with its modern cityscapes – is the fitting backdrop for the Interdisciplinary Seminar on Medievalism, a new seminar series that will explore the manifold methods and motivations for transporting ‘the medieval’ across temporal boundaries. The seminar will commence on Saturday 7 October 2017 with a symposium on ‘Experiencing the Middle Ages in the Post-Medieval World’. We are delighted that Dr Sarah Salih (KCL) will be our keynote speaker. Our subjects are intended to include:

* Political Medievalism

* Medievalism and Film / TV

* Medievalism in Popular Culture

* Literary Medievalism

* Medievalism in Art and Architecture

* Modes of reception

* Eco-Medievalism

* Medievalism and Gender
