Description

This session explores the movement of literary texts across borders, and seeks to develop new models of cultural history that move beyond anachronistic notions of the modern nation state and a national language. It argues that cultural exchange across borders (linguistic and territorial) was the norm rather the exception, and examines examples of such exchange as sources for innovation and creativity in medieval literature. - Ad Putter
