Description

While impossible to gauge historical authenticity, performance as described in courtly literature provides insight into the way it was conceived in the medieval period ; and modern performances of courtly literature can have the same effect. After all, these texts were intended to be heard in a community of readers, not consumed in silence by an individual. Thus, looking at a text through the lens of performance has great potential to challenge or (re)shape our understanding of it. This panel includes papers that consider various aspects of performance in courtly literature. When applicable, presenters may perform as well.
