“One of the great virtues of American/Medieval Goes North is ist wide range of contributors with fascinatingly diverse relationships to the main terms of analysis. There are academic scholars, poets, filmmakers, tribal elders, teachers at various levels; there are Indigenous people, people from settler colonial cultures, expats, immigrants. Their analytic and imaginative encounters with the North catch at the intensely symbolic and political charge of that locus. At a time when Medieval Studies cannot afford to ignore the period’s popular uptake – cannot continue with business as usual in the face of white supremacists’ brazen appropriations of the Middle Ages – this volume points to new possibilities for grappling with the uneasy relationships between the ‘American’ and the ‘medieval’.” – Prof Carolyn Dinshaw, New York University
