Popular Culture and the Middle Ages

Via our good friend, the Great Nokes, at Unlocked Wordhoard, I learn that not only does the Society for Popular Culture and the Middle Ages exist, a fact that had previously escaped me, but they have a web page/blog:

The "Great Nokes?" And here I was only shooting for the "Minimally Adequate Nokes."

I'm afraid, Scott, that you've done so well at the Minimally Adequate that you've actually achieved greatness.....

Hi. I saw your posting about our site (our new blog is at http://popularcultureandthemiddleages.blogspot.com/). I am co-founder, with Carl James Grindley, of the Society for the Study of Popular Culture and the Middle Ages. We've actually been around (under various names) since 2000 but formalized as "The Society for the Study of Popular Culture and the Middle Ages" in 2004. We have organized a number of sessions at Kalamazoo (details on the blog) and occasional sessions at the meetings of the Northeast Popular/American Culture Association, The Popular Culture Association, The Film & History League, and at The Medieval and Renaissance Forum at Plymouth State University.

Thanks again for the mention,
Michael Torregrossa
