Medieval Media and Culture

Medieval Media and Culture responds to a vibrant contemporary research field by foregrounding ways in which individuals interacted with written, visual, dramatic, and material media in medieval and early modern cultures. It seeks to illuminate and contextualize particular aspects of medieval culture through in-depth, insightful examination, and in so doing, to shed light on the ways in which the social may be revealed through the cultural.

This new series puts medieval media in context, and considers its contemporary consumption and interpretation, and how we interact with and understand its remnants as modern audiences.  In this way, the series looks back to medieval and early modern pasts and forward to our own societies and cultures.
