Four scholars of medieval literature— Britt Mize of Texas A & M , Renée Trilling of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Robert Upchurch of the University of North Texas, and Elizabeth Watkins of Loyola New Orleans--converged at UTA from September 28 to 30 to workshop their current writing projects. The four were joined by organizer, Jacqueline Fay, Associate Professor of English, and Jason Hogue, PhD candidate in the English Department and specialist in Early Modern and Environmental literature. Each participant received intense commentary on their work, on topics ranging from relics, romance, penitence for soldiers, medieval play-writing, medical remedies, riddles, and documents. The Medieval Writing Workshop convenes annually, and has previously been held at Stanford University, UC-Boulder, UW-Madison, Columbia, and UC-Irvine/Riverside.
