Description

In the study of medieval cultural production, fragmentation is often seen in a negative light: a fragment is part of a greater entity that cannot be recovered, and its most important job is to stand in for that whole. But fragmentation can itself be eloquent. This session seeks to take a fresh look at the things that medieval songs and texts fragment themselves. -Anna Zayaruznaya
