Kathleen Verduin conducts workshop on Medievalism

Kathleen Verduin, one of the most experienced practitioners of medievalism, Associate Editor of Studies in Medievalism from 1982 to 1998 and Professor of American Literature at Hope College, recently led a workshop on Medievalism and the American Renaissance for Richard Utz's current graduate seminar on "Studies in Medievalism." Participants were able to learn about the genesis of medievalism as an academic specialty area and discuss the views on medieval culture expressed by famous Americans from William Bradford through Walt Whitman.
