Welcome to Medieval Meets Modern

Welcome to Medieval Meets Modern, a Middle Ages for Educators Series that explores options for teaching medieval texts alongside more recent works.

Series directors Gina Brandolino and Moira Fitzgibbons want to generate classroom dialogue about medieval and modern texts that might initially seem quite different from one another. The goal is to encourage students to see medieval works not as an impossibly distant body of literature, but as participants in artistic conversations that continue to this day.

Current and forthcoming video titles include:


What unconventional literary pairings have you used in a K-8, high school, or college classroom?

If you are interested in contributing a video, please contact us.

We would love to feature your teaching strategies in our MMM series!
