Annie Narver

Annie Narver, a Department of English First Year Writing Program adjunct instructor, presented “Reconciling the Uncanny: Forgiveness, Caritas and Compassion for Malory’s Palomides” on Feb. 8 at the 2019 Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and the Medieval Association of the Pacific joint conference on Magic, Religion, and Science in the Global Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Narver’s scholarship uncovers similarities between Christian and Muslim knights instead of binarism. Her view that caritas and compassion resolve “otherness” suggests Le Morte d’Arthur invites disenfranchised readers to exchange difference for fellowship.
