NEMLA 2015: Chaucer and Italian Poetics

Chaucer and Italian Poetics

One of the first English readers of Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio, Chaucer did more than translate the poetry of his Italian predecessors: he interpreted and transformed what he read. Chaucer's encounter with Italian literature shaped his conception of vernacular authorship and the construction of a literary tradition. This panel seeks papers focusing on the interaction between Chaucer and his Italian sources. A wide range of critical approaches to the theory and practice of interpreting intertextual relationships are especially welcome.

Word Hoard Issue 4: "Word of Mouth"

Word Hoard (Western University)

Viva voce—"with living voice," but also (and more commonly) the phenomenon of "word of mouth." When incidents of speech, song, or shouting take place, it is the mouth that transforms private impulse into audible sound. Articulatory phonetics tells us that this physiological transubstantiation is little more than the aerodynamic energy of breath rendered into sound waves, or acoustic energy. Yet when do words become more than translations, and mouths more than translating machines?

The Virtual Education Project

One of the most effective ways of learning is to immerse ourselves in the cultures we study; yet, we often encounter problems when these cultures are separated from us by constraints such as geography or time. When studying various people, places, events, and works, students and teachers rarely have the resources to visit each (if any) historical landmarks pertaining to their subject matter, restricting both research and teaching to textbooks and/or an amalgam of materials from various resources. The Virtual Education Project (VEP) is a large-scale pedagogical undertaking directed at providing both students and teachers with visual introductions to historical and contemporary landmarks (worldwide) relevant to the study of the humanities.

"Ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures."
—Ray Bradbury

"[T]rash talks to us, or certainly speaks of us. However much we want to put trash and garbage and waste and rubbish out of sight, out of mind, out of smell, there is considerable evidence that we take them to be revelatory of all manner of not insignificant facts about individuals, communities, civilizations, or that tired old workhorse the 'human condition.'"
—Elizabeth V Spelman
