Richard Utz, professor of medievalism studies and associate dean of faculty development, published an essay in the book The United States of Medievalism.

The essay, “Three Vignettes and a White Castle: Knighthood and Race in Modern Atlanta,” examines the afterlife of medieval culture in the quintessentially modern City of Atlanta, with a specific focus on issues of inequity and exclusion and the continuities in Atlanta, architecturally, culturally, socially, of an imagined white Middle Ages.

The book is available for purchase on the University of Toronto Press website.
