Drawing from theatre, English studies, and art history, among others, these essays discuss the challenges and rewards of teaching medieval and early modern texts in the 21st-century university. Topics range from the intersections of race, religion, gender, and nation in cross-cultural encounters to the use of popular culture as pedagogical tools.

Attar and Shutters's collection of essays offers resounding support for making our medieval and early modern courses relevant. an invaluable tool for any instructor interested in crafting a more inclusive, relevant, and diverse medieval or early modern course. (Thomas H. Blake, Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching (SMART), Vol. 27 (1), 2020)

The volume aims to showcase pedagogical strategies employed by the authors in their classrooms in colleges across the United States and Canada. it will serve as a tremendous resource for teachers of cross-cultural encounters . A list of suggested readings at the end of the volume helps instructors explore some of the primary and secondary sources discussed in the articles. Anyone teaching courses on premodern multicultural Europe will find something of interest in the volume. (Maya Soifer Irish, Speculum, A Journal of Medieval Studies, Vol. 91 (4), October, 2016)
