CFP: Introducing Medieval Studies to Non-Majors

Introducing Medieval Studies to Non-Majors

Too often medievalists find themselves teaching survey and
introductory-level classes that contain a majority of students who are
not planning on going into this area of study but who are also not
really interested in the subject. These students also often have little
to no background knowledge of the field and can be a challenging group
to teach. This session is a pedagogical one that allows those who teach
survey and other classes with a Medieval basis (literature, history or
art for example) to share some of their best practices and teaching
techniques or research.

Proposals for 20-minute presentations, accompanied by the Congress
participant information form (see attachment), may be submitted to Gael
Grossman ( or Alison Ganze
( no later than September 15.
