      Thank you for your interest in the Society for the Study of Popular
      Culture and the Middle Ages. Incorporating the Society for Arthurian
      Popular Culture Studies, the Society for the Study of Popular Culture
      and the Middle Ages was founded in 2004 by Michael A. Torregrossa and
      Carl James Grindley to facilitate the discussion and debate of
      representations of the medieval in post-medieval popular culture and
      the dissemination of information regarding studies of this material.
      In the future, we hope to expand our coverage to also include the
      popular culture of the Middle Ages itself.

      The society is primarily a virtual community of scholars and
      enthusiasts that convene at various discussion lists hosted by Yahoo!
      Groups (formerly eGroups). Information about these lists is provided
      below. The society also maintains a series of websites that feature
      online bibliographies focused on popular medievalisms, including
      Arthuriana (KING ARTHUR FOREVER and THE ARTHUR OF THE COMICS), film
      and television (MEDIEVAL STUDIES AT THE MOVIES) and the comics medium
      (THE ARTHUR OF THE COMICS and THE MEDIEVAL COMICS PROJECTS). We also
      sponsor and organize a number of sessions each year at regional,
      national, and international conferences devoted to either Medieval
      Studies or Popular Culture Studies. Details about current and
      forthcoming sessions can be found at the society's homepage:
