Sponsored by the Center for Medieval-Renaissance Studies at the University of Virginia's College at Wise, the UVa-Wise Medieval-Renaissance Conference promotes scholarly discussion in all disciplines of Medieval and Renaissance studies. This year's conference begins on Thursday, Sept. 26, and concudes on Saturday, Sept.
Language is a crucial aspect of the Francophone world, on the threshold between French and Creole, or other indigenous languages. The decision to write in a certain language can be simply dictated by the author’s feelings, or it can become a true political statement. As well, choosing one does not always mean that the other will remain silent: whether such process is carefully crafted, or on the contrary happens on a subconscious level, languages influence one another, and such influx tend to surface in poems, novels, songs, and other forms of expression.
Stories are not only told, but are often enacted or explored through play or interactive media. This working group will share in-progress work and discuss the methodological challenges of studying these unique modes of storying.
