The section "Engaging with the Past: Reinventing the Middle Ages" focussed on the topic of postmedievalism and the reception of the Middle Ages in succeeding periods, and aimed to combine medieval studies, modern literary studies, and cultural studies.

Edgar isn't all good, just as Heathcliff isn't all bad. Heathcliff (Wuthering Heights) and Edward Rochester (Jane Eyre) are forerunners of the teethgrinding, masterful, passionate, dark heroes of today's sentimental romances.
