Utz prefaces volume on Neo-medievalism in the Media
Richard Utz is the author of the "Preface" (entitled: A Moveable Feast: Repositionings of 'the Medieval' in Medieval Studies, Medievalism, and Neo-Medievalism") for the essay collection, Neo-medievalism in the Media:
Essays on Film, Television, and Electronic Games, edited by Carol L. Robinson and Pamela Clements. The volume ends with an "Epilogue" by Terry Jones (yes, Terry Jones of Monty Python fame). And on the pages framed by these two paratexts scholars investigate the many diverse
ways in which contemporary media represent, reflect, and recreate
medieval culture. See the full table of contents and publisher's information HERE.
