Wednesday 13 July 2005, 19.30-20.30
|Moderator/Chair:||Diane Watt, Department of English Literature & Creative Writing, Aberystwyth University|
This round table will address a number of key theoretical and queer issues in relation to current medieval research including the queer body and the plague, queer saints, and queering devotional literature. Other topics addressed by speakers include the application of Deleuze and Guatarri’s concept of the rhizome to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, a consideration of Dinshaw’s work on Chaucer’s Pardoner in the light of the work of Derrida and Jean Luc Nancy, and a discussion of queer temporality in relation to The Book of Margery Kempe.
