[MEDIEVALE:93] Demande de présentation: "Center and Periphery in Medieval Latin Studies" Michael Meckler

Je m'excuse de faire le message suivant en anglais, mais la demande originale de Prof. Hexter est en anglais. Notez bien: le congrès de l'American Philological Association l'année prochaine se situe à Montréal. Je suppose qu'on pourrait faire la communication en français, mais la grande majorité des congressistes sont anglophones.
panel of the Medieval Latin Studies Group (MLSG) at the January 2006 annual meeting of the American Philological Association (APA) in Montreal
organized by Prof. Ralph Hexter, University of California, Berkeley

Since its emergence as an area of study a little more than a century ago, Medieval Latin has been perceived by scholars as having had a geographical center extending from Italy to England with France and Germany -- Charlemagne's empire -- at its very core. Yet Latin was also an important literary language on the Iberian peninsula, in Celtic regions and Scandinavia, and at times in North Africa, Eastern Europe, and the Holy Land. This panel seeks to shift the focus from the center to the "periphery" in order to consider Medieval Latin "around the edges" and, if possible, to reflect on the implications of such a broadening of our perspective.
