Medieval Francophone Literary Culture Outside France Conference,
6-7 June 2013, University College London
CALL FOR PAPERS
Medieval Francophone Literary Culture Outside France is a major AHRC-funded research project, based at KCL, UCL and Cambridge University, which aims to investigate how francophone literary texts travelled across Europe and beyond. Celebrating UCL’s particular strengths in northern and eastern European cultures, the June 2013 conference is intended to highlight the northern transmission of French-language texts, while also making wider connections. The plenary speakers will be Prof. Keith Busby (University of Wisconsin) and Dr Frank Brandsma (Utrecht University). We will be happy to consider papers that discuss the project’s key texts and manuscripts, but hope also to see the project’s questions addressed much more widely.
Please email proposals, of approx. 250 words, to Dr Dirk Schoenaers (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1 December, 2012. Papers should be approximately 20 minutes long, and may be delivered in English or French.
We plan to publish a volume of papers from this and the second project conference, which will be held at King’s College, Cambridge, 10-12 April 2014.
