Description

Building on the great success of the inaugural Reading Old Italian Aloud workshop this year, we propose a workshop that highlights the merits both pedagogical and scholarly of reading old Italian texts (ca. 1100-1500) aloud. We invite participants to read selections of verse or prose texts that call attention to the wide range of early vernacular production, from poetry in dialect to popular sermons to legal texts, while providing tips to others on how to work with such texts. We hope that an emphasis on “minor” voices might serve to add historical context as well as provide access to the tool set required to work with these traditionally less regarded texts.
