Matrons, Monsters, and Men: "Beowulf"

Matrons, Monsters, and Men: "Beowulf" (2007)

We invite papers considering the latest Beowulf film, directed by
Roger Zemackis, in relation to issues of gender and sexuality.
Possible papers might consider this filmic interpretation of the poem
from the perspective of medievalism, constructions of femininity
and/ or masculinity, landscape and sex, bodies on display,
exploitation of sex/gender, etc.

This session is offered in conjunction with the film festival and the
viewing of Beowulf (2007) and sponsored by the Society for Medieval
Feminist Scholarship.
