AbstractThis, the 2nd of three sessions co-sponsored by the Oecologies Research Cluster and Medieval Ecocriticisms, presents research on boundaries and connections between medieval primary texts and approaches to ecocriticisms, as we move toward assembling Medieval Environments, a collection of primary texts for the teaching and engagement of medieval ecocriticisms, medieval environments, and medieval ecological theoretical approaches. The papers in this session address how representations of non-human environments function to structure human and non-human identities.
