These projects investigate and employ contemporary technologies to channel, recreate, or reinvent the medieval through various mediums including, but not limited to, literature, film, and architecture.
Medieval New York seeks to create an immersive experience with interactive materials for understanding the medieval, understood in its broadest sense, in New York City. The project identifies, describes, and catalogs the medieval in New York, and crafts itineraries that allow New Yorkers or visitors to experience the city in a new way. The aim of the project is to promote engagement with diverse communities, both within and outside of academia, allowing them to experience the influences and echoes of the medieval period in the context of their modern, everyday environments.

These reviews engage with broader questions as to how certain films have presented the late antique, medieval, and early modern worlds and what contemporary or historical influences, if any, have shaped the narratives of these films.
