93rd Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America

Emory University, Atlanta Georgia
1 - 3 March 2018


Emory University is pleased to host the Medieval Academy of America for the first time since 1984. Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport is the most-traveled in the world, and travel is made even more convenient by the recent addition of the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal. Atlanta is also home to the High Museum of Art, Emory’s Michael C. Carlos Museum, the Martin Luther King Center, the Civil Rights Museum, the Center for Disease Control, and of course, the Coca-Cola Museum. A more ambitious trip, approximately an hour and a half south of the city, takes you to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Little White House in Warm Springs, Georgia. The entire conference will be held and housed at the Emory Conference Center, a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired building located on a 26-acre forest preserve.  Shops and restaurants are adjacent at Emory Point.

Medieval Literature and the High School Curriculum (Salon IV)
Changes in the K-12 curriculum as determined by the Common Core and various state standards have impacted the offering of traditional medieval literature texts in the high school. This roundtable explores two issues with regard to medieval literature in the high school curriculum: 1) Is medieval literature being taught, and if not, why not? 2) If medieval literature is being taught in the high schools, what texts are taught? These issues have strong implications for medieval literature and its representation in the academy. If students come to the university without prior knowledge, the study of medieval literature, including the texts we study and how we approach them, will be severely impacted.
