The University of New Mexico's Institute for Medieval Studies, in conjunction with the conference committee for Studies in Medievalism, presents the 26th Annual International Conference on Medievalism, at UNM, Albuquerque, on Oct. 21–22.
The theme of this year's conference is "Medievalism, Arthuriana, and Landscapes of Enchantment." Post-medieval interest in Arthuriana has flourished since the 19th-century medieval revival and is, for instance, reflected in the 2010 publication of Joerg O. Fichte's From Camelot to Obamalot: Essays on Medieval and Modern Arthurian Literature.
This year's program features an excellent spread of papers on art, architecture, film, graphic novels, literature, and video games, as well as plenary addresses by noted scholars Kevin Harty and Elizabeth Sklar.
