Abstract: In this workshop we will think through the middling space of between as a temporal, spatial, and embodied phenomenon. Medieval philosophers, artists, theologians, and authors conceptualized being in-between through various binaries: male/female, salvation/damnation, sacred/secular, human/animal, etc. New work in premodern trans and queer studies offers new ways of imagining a middling space, neither here nor there, and challenges the binaristic logics of both medieval thinkers and modern scholarship. We can consider the oscillating forces that moves bodies between and through time, space, language, and other mediums. How is the between or middle presented in visual, literary, or historical registers?

Dr. Goodrich’s public lecture and workshop is sponsored by the Program in Medieval Studies, Department of Art History, Department of History, Department of English, Department of French & Italian, and the Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic +. This lecture and workshop is also funded in part by an Associated Students of Madison (ASM) viewpoint neutral grant and the Wisconsin Experience Grant (WEG). For accessibility accommodations, please contact: gams@rso.wisc.edu.
