Insular Identities and the Borders of Medieval Britain

Insular Identities and the Borders of Medieval BritainWhile England,
Scotland, and Wales each produced their own bodies of literature in
the Middle Ages, their physical proximity at times engendered a sense
of shared literary culture, even as the fraught political relations
among them complicated any notion of a shared identity. This panel
seeks to explore Britain's insular identities through an examination
of its borders, and invites papers dealing with depictions of
borders, bordered identities, border theory, or cross-border
relations in medieval Britain. Send abstracts to Katherine H.
Terrell: by 30 September.
