  and medievalism in modern popular culture.

  to teach the Middle Ages, including films, comics, novels 
  and other cultural products.  
   
  PROTEAN ARTHUR: Explore 
  the ever-popular Arthur from his roots to the 21st century.  
  What made him popular then-what keeps him going now?
   
  MEDIEVAL COMICS (joint session with the Comic & 
  Comic Arts Area): Examine modern comics influenced 
  by the medieval world as well as reading medieval artifacts 
  as sequential pictorial narratives.
   
  REIMAGING MEDIEVAL MUSIC: Consider how modern 
  performance requirements bring a very different context 
  to medieval music, as well as how modern reinterpretations 
  of medieval music by groups as varied as Värttinä and Amorphis 
  resituate the music.
