First Edition

Thomas Prendergast and Stephanie Trigg

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A bold intervention in the debate over the medieval and medievalism, written by two of the top scholars in the field
  • Suggests that affect can enable us to 'touch' the Middle Ages
  • Examines the future of the medieval and medievalistic, arguing that these fields can inform a post-modern response to the crisis in the humanities and the corporatisation of higher education
  • Explores the previously overlooked medievalism of the medievals themselves
