Lingua franca: Global and Local French in the Middle Ages
Arts & Humanities Common Room - G24 |
Malet Place | London | WC1E 7JE | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
This session will be presented by UCL researchers, funded by the AHRC and Leverhulme Trust, working on the global and local medieval uses of French and French culture. What do we make of this international phenomenon? Why did people in so many places chose to write and read in French, and what did that choice mean to them? Is it even accurate to describe this global medieval language as ‘French’? Can modern transnational languages such as Globish throw light on the past – or vice versa?
Panellists Ella Cullen, Dr Elizabeth Dearnley and Dr Jane Gilbert will lead the session.
This event will be followed by a drinks reception.
