  • Medieval Futures: The Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies,
           Binghamton University: 1966–2016
    • Abstract: 1966: The US war in Vietnam begins to escalate rapidly. To meet the needs of this highly intensive, overseas military engagement, the Selective Service conscripts 343,000 American men between the ages of eighteen and twenty-six into the US army.1 Until this year, draft boards had generally granted deferments to full-time university students, but now all “underperforming” students are required to pass an exam to avoid being reclassified as draft-eligible.2 The antiwar movement consequently becomes more active on university campuses. Antiwar rallies are held in several US cities on March 26, including a large rally in New York City drawing 22,000 participants.3 Martin Luther King Jr. denounces the war in Vietnam.4 ... Read More

  • Future Perfect: Reading Temporalities at the Royal Women’s Monastery at
           Chelles, ca. 660–1050
    • Abstract: At the turn of the ninth century, the future must have held tremendous promise for the women at the royal monastic community at Chelles, an ancient Merovingian foundation near Paris. With Charlemagne’s sister Gisla at the helm, anything must have seemed possible. After all, Gisla maintained a close relationship with her brother, frequenting court, maintaining correspondence and political as well as familial relations, and even accompanying him to Rome to witness his coronation.1 She also displayed her own royal persona during her visits to court (more than some may have thought proper, given her monastic affiliations and obligations) and other public appearances. She aggressively collected an extraordinary ... Read More

  • Producing the Route of St. James: The Camino de Santiago in the Nineteenth
           and Twentieth Centuries
    • Abstract: Situated on the western coast of Galicia, Santiago de Compostela claims to hold the tomb of St. James the Apostle. According to tradition, James was martyred in Palestine in 44 CE; his body was then miraculously transferred by boat to the Galician coast and buried there, as James was reputed to have evangelized the Iberian Peninsula. Veneration of the relics of St. James began in the ninth century, and by the twelfth century, Compostela was the end-point of an elaborate network of pilgrimage routes—the Camino de Santiago—originating all over Western Europe. Since the Middle Ages, the historiography of the city of Santiago de Compostela has been overshadowed by the Camino de Santiago. The modern revival of ... Read More

  • Virgil and Sordello’s Embrace in Dante’s Commedia: Latin Poeta
           Meets Vernacular Dicitore
    • Abstract: Close to the foot of the mountain of Purgatory, while still outside the gate of Purgatory proper, Dante stages a scene of wished-for political and cultural reconciliation. In Purgatorio 6, a troop of souls who repented late and were violently killed surrounds Dante and Virgil, clamoring for Dante’s attention. Just beyond this group, the two travelers encounter a solitary, seated figure who asks them where they hail from. “Mantoa…,” Virgil begins to reply, when the shade leaps up to identify himself as “Sordello / de la tua terra [Sordello from your city]” (74–75), and the two fellow citizens embrace.1 This imagined embrace between Sordello, a thirteenth-century troubadour born in Mantua, in the Italian region of ...

  • Gilding the Lily: John of Rupescissa’s Prophetic System and the Decline
           of the Angevins of Naples
    • Abstract: For medieval Christians, crucial portions of the future were already known, mapped and immutable in Scripture. During the Last Days, Antichrist would arise to prey and make war upon the faithful. He would attempt to lead even the elect astray, but his attempts would come to nothing, destined to predetermined defeat with the Second Coming, the Last Judgment, and the final victorious reign of Christ. It was not for the faithful to know “the times or the seasons” (Acts 1.7) when these things would transpire, but their inevitability made the outcome of the final stages of history a foregone conclusion. Yet, despite biblical and patristic warnings against speculation about the end times, medieval exegetes did seek such ... Read More

    • Abstract: “On Monday, July 20, at the break of dawn, I was born in the city of Arezzo,” Petrarch recounts in a letter to Boccaccio, “a red-letter day for our people,” as it was that very morning that the White Guelphs stormed Florence’s gates in a failed uprising.1 Due to this factional strife, Petrarch had been born in exile, although in February the following year he and his mother were permitted to move to the family holding of Incisa, just inside Florentine territory, where he spent his early childhood. Before leaving for that country estate, Petrarch would have been baptized in Arezzo’s Santa Maria della Pieve, just a five-minute walk from his birthplace on Viccolo dell’Orto (Fig. 1).2The thirteenth-century façade has ...

  • Fluid City: River Gods in Rome and Contested Topography
    • Abstract: Few major cities have undergone so thorough a transformation as early modern Rome, where a shrunken “gigantic cadaver”1 became a paradigmatic early modern theater of architectural magnificence, worthy of its ancient predecessor. No single site better exemplifies this transformation than the Campidoglio, the ancient Capitoline Hill, surmounted by a grand piazza bordered on three sides by palaces but open to the city on the fourth side where St. Peter’s dome, designed by Michelangelo for Pope Paul III (r. 1534–49), rises above the distant skyline. The same architect and patron played key roles in the sixteenth-century remodeling of the Campidoglio (Fig. 1), though the only building actually erected on the hill by the ... Read More

  • The Leper on the Road to Canterbury: The Summoner, Digital Manuscripts,
           and Possible Futures
    • Abstract: [I]nstead of becoming encased or, more accurately, stilled in the past, archival objects circulate in ways that parallel yet differ from their previous uses. In other words, instead of being a catalog of dead objects, the archive may foster an afterlife, and it may recirculate. And such circulation inextricably depends on bodies. Indeed, the material of the archive is inseparable from the uncategorized bodies with which it engages: the touch of human hands, the impulse of the scholar, an active tide of research wherein these objects, once again, move. How do we deal with that unarchived process of use? How do we talk of the ways in which objects are touched (both tactilely and symbolically) and deployed?The future ... Read More

  • Retraction and Re-Collection: Chaucer’s Apocalyptic Self-Examination
    • Abstract: At the end of the Canterbury Tales stands Chaucer’s “Retraction,” wherein he seems, at first glance, to be taking back and apologizing for the book we have just read. However, this troubling appendage is not what it might seem; not only is Chaucer not “taking back” the Canterbury Tales, he is actually revealing something about the Tales not evident until this moment in the narrative. What we see in the Retraction is Chaucer reconsidering his works, evaluating his role as author, and anticipating future judgment (God’s judgment of Chaucer, and future readers’ judgment of Chaucer’s works). Chaucer is not seeking expiation, as the metaphor of pilgrimage would immediately suggest; instead, he is seeking—and has just ... Read More

  • Writing Like a Fan: Fan Fiction and Medievalism in Paul C. Doherty’s
           Canterbury Mysteries
    • Abstract: In “Dreaming the Middle Ages,” Umberto Eco examines the shelves in an American bookstore. He lists several titles he believes constitute a “neomedieval wave” in popular culture.1 He then characterizes “Ten Little Middle Ages” that demonstrate various ahistoric, “medieval” portrayals found in popular culture. The book titles he lists, such as The Sword is Forged, The Lure of the Basilisk, and Dragonquest, clearly belong in the bookstore’s Science Fiction and Fantasy section.2 If Eco had searched the Mystery section of the store, he would have found a similar “neomedieval wave.” One of the most prolific authors in this subgenre is Paul C. Doherty, who read history at Oxford where he wrote his D.Phil. thesis ... Read More

  • Shaping Our (Medieval) Future through Nomadic Insurgency: A Radical
           Reading of Ywain and Gawain
    • Abstract: “Medieval futures” connotes not necessarily the next move for medieval studies but the reshaping of our future with the medieval in mind. Medieval texts can inform and offer novel approaches to direct action, social justice, as well as social libertarian, anticapitalist, anti-Statist movements. To this end, I advocate decontextualizing medieval literary texts so that their radical possibility can inform our own spaces and movement, particularly in terms of social justice, dissent, and protest. By decontextualizing the text, I mean the removal of the literary text from its temporal and regional political context in order to allow the text to reflect the radical possibilities applicable to our current and future ...

  • Solomon au feminin: (Re)translating Proverbs 31 in Christine de
           Pizan’s Cité des dames
    • Abstract: In his Etymologies, Isidore of Seville defines the interpres, or translator, as one situated “between two languages” as well as one who stands “between God, whom he interprets, and men, to whom he reveals the divine mysteries.”1 Rita Copeland points to this quote as emblematic of the conceptual inseparability of translation and glossing in the Middle Ages, where these related hermeneutic practices shaped the reception of texts and the conversation surrounding them. The interpretive “standing between” was in some sense the necessary yet problematic condition for the “carrying across” of translation. By repackaging ancient Latin texts for a contemporary French audience, medieval translators not only recoded them ... Read More

  • Transnational Feminism and Medieval Futures: The Cartographic Imaginary in
           Christine de Pizan’s Chemin de long estude
    • Abstract: If the logic of imperialism and the logic of modernity share a notion of time, they also share a notion of space as territory.… Witness especially, the “war against terrorism” after the events of 11 September 2001. The borders and autonomy of nation-states, the geographies of nationhood are irrelevant in this war, which can justify imperialist aggression in the name of “homeland security” of the United States. Even the boundaries between space and outer space are not binding any more. In this expansive and expanding continent, how do I locate myself?In 1938, Virginia Woolf published a small collection of essays entitled Three Guineas. In the third essay, she hypothesizes the response a woman might make if requested ... Read More
