Figurae: Reading Medieval Culture

Back to English literature

Over the last ten years, a number of exciting intellectual developments have taken place at the confluence of medieval studies and contemporary critical theory. In response to these developments, Figurae will be broadly and provocatively interdisciplinary. It will attempt to bring together research in material culture with philosophical and theoretical thought. From a base in literary and historical studies, it will seek to transform exclusively text-centered views of the Middle Ages, incorporating perspectives from art history, music, linguistics, science, philosophy, and law. In its awareness of the temporal dimension of figurae, it will reflect the constructedness and historicity of critical concepts and institutions.
