Description

The roundtable "Itinerant Texts" will examine movement, communication, and exchange in Franco-Italian cultural artifacts (including but not limited to literary texts). In part this emphasis emerges from the Italian peninsula's history as a site of frequent and rapid cultural, political, and commercial transformations, as a result of invasions, colonizations, population shifts, trade networks, economic innovations, and new technologies. This session will place Franco-Italian cultural traditions within the dynamic historical and economic context of 12th-15th century Italy and elucidate how cultural products can both reflect and enable a multi-lingual proto-capitalist culture on the move.
