This roundtable explores innovative approaches to teaching Italian language, history, and/or culture. Of particular – but not exclusive – interest are methods that utilize digital resources (video games, websites, computer programs). What resources and genres make the most effective teaching tools? Can interactivity with technology influence the way students learn? Which linguistic, cultural, and literary concepts can best be illustrated?

Please submit presentation proposals by November 30, 2015 to:

From the anonymous Middle English Court of Sapience to Nicole Oresme's Livre du ciel et du monde to the lavishly illustrated copies of Pliny's Natural History produced for the Visconti family, medieval scientific discourse was often inflected by – and constructed around – literary, musical, and artistic forms present at court. This conference invites abstracts on what it means to "do science at court" in the late medieval period, particularly in the context of literature, music, and the arts.
