The Year's Work in Medievalism - Double Issue Release with In Memorium for Alicia McKenzie

27 Jul 2023 1:35 AM | Renee Ward

The editors of The Year’s Work in Medievalism are delighted to announce the publication of volume 35.36 (2020-2021), a double issue. YWiM is the ISSM’s own peer-reviewed open access scholarly journal. The new volume volume represents work completed during the COVID-19 lockdown years, and so YWiM 35.36 contains: a pedagogy cluster; articles that discuss form, media, and medievalism; and a posthumous article by Alicia McKenzie (1976-2022), which we hope serves as a lasting memorial to her life and work.

We encourage you to visit to read and enjoy innovative medievalism scholarship. We hope that this Table of Contents serves as a thrilling preview of the volume:
