New co-editor for Medievally Speaking
Updated: Oct 13, 2018
Medievally Speaking, the review arm of the International Society for the Study of Medievalism, is the world's principal open access journal encouraging critical engagement with the continuing process of inventing the Middle Ages and has been accessed almost a quarter of a million times in recent years. Our international success has only been possible because I have had the steadfast support of many colleagues willing to share the responsibility of curating our reviewing and publishing process.
Dr. Leah Haught has made Medievally Speaking one of her academic priorities and played an important part in sustaining the publication as assistant and associate editor. Since last year, she has pretty much collaborated with me at the level of a co-editor. That's why I am very happy to announce officially and publicly that she has accepted to serve as co-editor.
Leah Haught is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of West Georgia. Her research interests cover a wide range medieval literatures and cultures as well as modern medievalisms, with emphases on Arthuriana, performativity, monstrosity, and nostalgia/temporality, broadly defined. Most recently her work has appeared in Year's Work in Medievalism and Arthuriana, and she has a forthcoming piece in The Once and Future Classroom. She is currently working on monograph on medieval Arthurian "medievalisms" and a co-edited METS volume.
