Medievalism — the reviving, restaging, or reworking of medieval culture in the present — is a highly contested practice, frequently associated with white supremacy and other kinds of reactionary politics. But this is not the whole story: in this course we will study works of medievalism that draw on the distant past precisely because of its capacity to estrange, queer, and defamiliarize. This mode of queer medievalism suggests a different way of thinking about time; about the past and our relationship to it as thinking and feeling subjects.
