Ok, so here is Kevin Harty's blurb on Medievalism: A Manifesto, as published by ARC Humanities Press. He's got me all figured out, it seems:
“Utz is the scholar/teacher as rabble rouser, in the very best sense of
the term – though some of the rabble are his own colleagues in the
academy. He argues for a fresh approach to a new topic in a way that
embraces not just the academy but also larger audiences with their own
distinctive views of and responses to what we call the medieval.” –

And the volume's coming out in January 2017, not December 2016. So it goes.
