'Remembering the Middle Ages? Reception, Identity, Politics', asks speakers and attendees to consider how the concept of a 'cultural memory' of the Middle Ages can be useful (or not) in understanding how and why scholars, artists, readers, and others have resourced or imagined the Middle Ages, in any post-medieval period. Participants are asked to interrogate the linguistic, material, and social networks that have been created by medieval things over time.
The event is a collaboration between the University of Notre Dame (USA) in England, and Kings College London.
