Description

This session, sponsored by the Canadian Society of Medievalists, explores the phenomenon of multilingualism and its status and function in medieval England. Considering English among its variety of medieval (and post-medieval) linguistic partners will do much to illuminate new ways of thinking about translation, communication, genre and difference and the work that they do in the production of medieval England and its English.
