“Travel in the World of Arthur”

The International Arthurian Society, North American Branch is hosting a
session on Traveling in (and out of) the World of Arthur for the
46thInternational Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo. The topic is broadly
envisioned, to include travel both physical and metaphorical/allegorical, in
any branch of Arthurian Studies – Literary, Historical, Art Historical, and
any other discipline; the English, French, Welsh, German, and any other
Arthurian tradition; the historical, chronicle, romance, poem cycle, epic,
novel, or any other Arthurian literary form or genre, and treating any
figure or figures featured within the world of Arthur. Special consideration
will be given to papers which explore (or “travel to”) the concept of Arthur
from a nontraditional viewpoint, i.e. Arthurian narratives in South American
and/or Asian/Middle Eastern/African contexts. There is room in this session
for three, twenty-minute papers on this subject.

Please send a 250-300 word abstract or proposal and completed participation
form to Dr. Kevin Harty, ( by September 10, 2010.
Questions about the session should be directed to the session organizer,
