Workshop on Les Cent Nouvelles Nouvelles, University of Glasgow, 16-17 September 2011
Proposals are invited for papers to be delivered at a forthcoming interdisciplinary workshop on MS Glasgow Hunter 252, 'Les Cent Nouvelles Nouvelles' (University of Glasgow, 16-17 September 2011). The aim of the conference is to reassess and expand our knowledge of the unique surviving manuscript of tales attributed to members of the court of Philippe le Bon, Duke of Burgundy (1396-1467). Particularly welcome would be submissions relating to the following themes:
* Scripta and codicology of MS Hunter 252
* Decorative schemes and illuminations
* Form, function and language of the tales
* Social and cultural context
* Reception of the work in the early modern period
This workshop is organised in partnership with the Université du Littoral Côte d'Opale (Dunkirk), where a joint international conference entitled 'Autour des Cent Nouvelles nouvelles: sources et rayonnements, contextes et interprétations' will be hosted on 20-21 October 2011.
Titles and abstracts (approx. 300 words) should be sent to Dr J. Simpson, SMLC French, University of Glasgow (firstname.lastname@example.org).
