The Uses of Magic in Middle English Literature
50th International Congress on Medieval Studies

May 14-17, 2015

This session provides a forum for new work being done on representations of magic in the various genres of Middle English literature. Literary texts depict magic and its uses in a variety of ways, opening up new possibilities for categorizing magic (beyond the classic natural/demonic model) and understanding its effects (both within and outside of texts).
