Description

Recent years have seen a long-overdue increase of scholarly interest in the texts, languages, and cultures of the Medieval Low Countries, a key nexus of the late-medieval spiritual, cultural, and literary economy. Given the close connections (both economic and cultural) between England and the Low Countries, the study and teaching of medieval England is particularly enriched by perspectives on literary, poetic, and devotional traditions from across the Channel. This roundtable, consisting of 4-6 short presentations followed by an open discussion, will provide a forum for this growing conversation by soliciting speakers interested in any aspect of the teaching, editing, and translation of the languages and literary cultures of the Low Countries as they inform pedagogical practice.
