The Future of the Past

This symposium brings together six medievalists and early modernists for a wide ranging conversation about institutional and canon transformation, especially in in a time of intolerance; the challenge past materials pose to current racial fantasies and formations; the inhibiting factors that the unthought whiteness of the fields present; how to forge a way forward to more inclusive memberships, institutions, shared endeavors. Our hope is to sustain and intensify the energy of two recent conference sessions, "The Color of Membership" at the Shakespeare Association of America and "Whiteness in Medieval Studies" at the International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo. This symposium is open to everyone who would like to attend and features
