Barbarous Tongues: Middle English and Beyond

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 - 12:25pm
MLA Middle English Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 3, 2019

Middle English language and literature’s status is a perennial matter of debate, whose immediate political subtexts include race, class, gender, and nation. Middle English texts themselves categorize barbarous tongues, mother tongues, lay and learned languages. How do medieval linguistic taxonomies politicize identity and territory, medieval or postmedieval? Can we locate concepts like the vulgar tongue and vernacular eloquence in our current critical lexicon? What is at stake in contemporary deployments of categories like classical, vernacular, or sacred language and world, national, provincial, or cosmopolitan language? How do these and other linguistic terms participate in the broader cultural politics of labels like barbarism and civilization?
