Relevant Research lecture: The misunderstood Middle Ages

2010-06-09 by News, Sports, and Art

The Middle Ages are too often misunderstood, says Dr. Daniel Kline, an associate professor of English at UAA. In this Relevant Research lecture delivered in the Spring of 2010, Kline gave a three-part talk that outlined our traditional understanding of “the Middle Ages,” summarized new research on the Medievil Era, and laid out the implications of “medievalism,” the post-medieval appropriations of that culture by modern culture. Kline concludes that, in many ways, our own historical moment is more “medieval” than we might otherwise imagine.

Professor Kline is introduced by Dr. James Liszka, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

This lecture was recorded on April 22, 2010 in Arts 150 at the University of Alaska, Anchorage.
