Studies in Medievalism XXVIII published

The most recent issue of Studies in Medievalism focuses on Medievalism and Discrimination. Editor Karl Fugelso’s description reads: “Discrimination has long played a part in medievalism studies, but it has rarely been weaponized as thoroughly and publicly as in recent exchanges. The essays in the first part of this volume respond to that development by examining some of the many forms discrimination has taken in medievalism (studies) relative to race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and ethnicity. These papers thus inform many of the subsequent chapters, which address a wide variety of aspects of medievalism, showing how many cultural areas it touches upon.”
