Description

The medieval history of Occitania, the region that is now Southern France, is introduced for study in classrooms across the country. This roundtable invites teachers who introduce undergraduates and graduate students to the territories of Toulouse, Provence, Narbonne, Mataplana, the montagne noire, or the cities of Marseille, Perpignan, Carcassonne, Minerve, Montsegur, and any other spaces in Occitania. These introductions could happen in History or English courses; Art History; or Religious Studies through the study of architecture, monasticism, liturgical music or the Waldensian or Cathar Heresies. Professors may teach using historical sources from the archives or the products from archeological digs. Is troubadour lyric used to give students a sense of the period in introductory courses in history or musicology? Are any of the vast number of troubadour songs dealing with historical material used by the historian? What sources do historians use and how are they studied? How do the troubadours fit into the English Department survey courses? Does Occitania fall under the purview of the French or the Spanish Department, or Italian, Music?
