This lecture series is devoted to contexts in which medieval culture has been used, misused, and appropriated in later periods. ‚Medievalism‘ is the study of the reception of the Middle Ages in post-medieval times, which our speakers approach from a decidedly critical perspective. Our aim is to scrutinise and reflect on the ways in which aspects of medieval culture (symbols, ideas, narratives, and historical events) have been taken up in later periods and to what extent these aspects have become instrumental in shaping our view both of the medieval past and on contemporary culture.
