Utz speaks with Medieval Institute Instructors
Richard Utz addressed instructors of MDVL 1450, "Heroes and Villains of the Middle Ages," on the topic of teaching Chaucer's Canterbury Tales at WMU's Medieval Institute. The discussion focused on practical approaches toward a successful navigation between the modernity and alterity of Chaucer's most famous (but fragmentary) text and ended with addressing the importance of neomedievalism for the future of medieval studies.
