    CFP for MLA 2015 in Vancouver: Disability and the Arthurian World

    From the maimed king to the leprous beggar to the blind queen to dwarves and giants, Arthurian characters exhibit a wide variety of disabilities and modes of embodiment that offer insights into social and cultural understandings of health, identity, sexuality, and language, among other subjects. The Arthurian Literature Discussion Group will explore diverse approaches to disability, deformity, or monstrosity within Arthurian texts. Send 300-500 word abstracts to Alex Mueller at alex.mueller@umb.edu by March 1.
