Meg Roland Published in Journal

Dr. Meg Roland, chair of the English literature and writing department, published an essay in the Winter 2012 issue of the journal Arthuriana.

Dr. Roland's essay is titled The Rudderless Boat: Fluid Time and Passionate Geography in (Hardyng's) Chronicle and (Malory's) Romance.

Building on Don Kennedy's work, Roland's essay asserts that Malory's geographic imagination has a strong debt to Hardyng's Chronicle, specifically in the way that Malory integrates chronological geographic space into the more fluid landscape of romance. As maritime criticism seeks to sail beyond the legacy of colonialism and exploitation to discover a 'radical elsewhere, outside space and time', the malleability of medieval cartography and the co-existence of romance time and chronicle time in Le Morte Darthur suggest the possibilities of just such a fluid geography.

Arthuriana is the widely respected quarterly for the International Arthurian Society - North American Branch. This peer-reviewed journal considers all aspects of the Arthurian and chivalric cultures from the Middle Ages to the current moment. Poised on the cutting edge of cultural studies, Arthuriana consistently publishes work by the most respected and innovative scholars in the field.
