Abstract

This session is part of a linked group of panels across a number of conferences in 2016 at Kalamazoo, Kings & Queens V, and IMC, Leeds. These panels are designed to encourage scholarship on the postmodern reception and representation of medieval and early modern rulers and other members of the royal household – both historical and fictional adaptations – in film and in television.
