Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog: Medieval Studies and New Media (New Middle Ages)


Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog: Medieval Studies and New Media (New Middle Ages) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Medieval Studies and New Media presents all of the most memorable posts of the medievalist internet phenomenon "Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog," newly revised and updated, along with essays on the genesis of the blog itself, the role of internet blogs in medieval scholarship, and the unique pleasures of studying a time period full of plagues, schisms, and assizes. “Le Vostre GC” and medievalists Bonnie Wheeler, Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, and Robert W. Hanning draw new conclusions about the ways medieval studies are perceived, the connection between the past and the present, and the historical roots of popular culture.
