Written by Professor Elan J. Pavlinich, the publisher's promotion had this to say: "Erotic Medievalisms is about the liberatory potential of sexualities, particularly as they relate to medieval histories and modern pleasures. Each of the texts analyzed subvert norms rooted in medieval cultures or assumptions about the “real” Middle Ages. This comparative study between medieval and modern texts foregrounds the sexual gratification of people who are typically excluded from representations of the Middle Ages, specifically women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals. These medievalisms extend eroticisms and erogenous zones beyond traditional limits of pleasure. Moreover, situating diverse iterations of desire within the medieval past emends narrowly-constructed histories that limit the erotic fantasies and experiences of marginalized people, directing sexual desires toward social justice."
