Margins, Borders & Outlaws in Medieval Literature: A Symposium in Celebration of Tom Hahn

755 Library Road, Rochester, NY 14626

A two-day mini conference celebrating the 50-year tenure at the University of Rochester of Professor Tom Hahn and the publication of a festschrift in his honor. 

Professor Hahn's intellectual engagement has centered on the sponsorship, production, and interpretation of texts and images from the earlier Middle Ages through the early modern period.  His teaching and research have repeatedly taken up representations of those at the edges of emerging European identities, including women, outlaws, virtuous pagans, “Indians,” and other racialized groups.  He has also published on Chaucer, Robin Hood, medieval popular romance, Gawain and the Green Knight, Malory, Virgil’s Dido, and Alexander the Great. He is the General Editor of the Chaucer Bibliographies, a member of the Advisory Board of the Middle English Texts Series, and has served as a trustee of the New Chaucer Society. Professor Hahn is also the recipient of the Edward Peck Curtis Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching (1996), the Goergen Award for Artistry and Achievement in Undergraduate Teaching (2001) and the Lifetime Achivement in Graduate Education Award (2017).

Please join us as we celebrate Professor Hahn's five decade-long career, as we hear from distinguished medievalists from across the country in a series of panels. All events are free and open to the public. Advance registration is requested below. 

Co-sponsored by the Department of English and Premodern Protocluster
