GENDER, MEDIEVALISM, AND FILM -- Have you ever wondered about the ways in which women have been portrayed in contemporary films with medieval themes? -- Have you ever been interested in how gender issues keep on cropping up in the Arthurian Romances? On Wednesday, Novemember 1st, Professor Sara Poor from the German Studies Department will be speaking about these issues and more! Professor Poor will speak at a presentation entitled "Gender, Medievalism, and Film". In her presentation, which will include some film clips, Professor Poor will give an informal talk on the diverse ways in which gender and medievalism have interacted in film, concentrating primarily on the Arthurian films shown as part of the Medieval Club's film series, but with some discussion of a few others not of the Arthurian genre including "The Anchoress", "The Sorceress" and the very recent and quite interesting "The Thirteenth Warrior." Prof. Poor plans on talking for 30-40 minutes and hopes that alively discussion will follow. Prof. Poor's presentation will begin at 5:30 pm on 11/1, in the lounge of Trancos House in Wilbur Hall. Those who need directions to this event can contact Jeff Hom at email@example.com. This event is sponsored by the Stanford Medieval Club. Everyone, especially those with a passing interest in enduring influence of the Middle Ages on modern culture or with an interest in representations of gender issues in popular culture, is encouraged to attend.
