Honors: Matthew Dentice

Matthew S. Dentice (English) has been awarded the 2019 Medieval Association of the Pacific (MAP) Founders' Prize for his paper, “Monarch of the Past and of the Future: Joachim of Fiore, the Last Emperor, and the Myth of King Arthur’s Return.” The prize recognizes an outstanding scholarly paper fashioned from a presentation given at the previous year’s annual conference by a graduate student, recent graduate, or independent scholar. The paper, tracing the popular notion of King Arthur’s future return to its origins in medieval Christian eschatology, was presented at last year’s joint RMMRA/MAP conference held at UNLV, and has been praised by the prize’s selection committee as, “an insightful and nuanced study of a substantial topic,” in which, “the writing is clear and engaging.”
