People form new grammars and dialects through creative languaging: creolization, code-switching, etc. The results carry markers of intercultural relations and historical tensions. How do raciolinguistics manifest in Medieval literature, Medieval reiterations, and historiography?Languages have a deep capacity to coexist, disrupt, and change, and they survive each cultural encounter either strengthened or weakened, but certainly transmogrified. Language’s abilities to form new grammars and dialects through creative formations is apparent in both Medieval texts and in Medieval reiterations.

The discipline of Comparative Literature has already been through its “age of multiculturalism” (1995) and its “age of globalization” (2006), in the effort to displace European/Eurocentric hierarchies of value with more nuanced goals for literary study. As Comparative Literature has diversified, however, medieval studies has often been aligned with the old Eurocentrisms. What can medieval studies contribute to the next phase of the discipline, the “age of anti-racism”?Please send 250 word abstracts to Michelle Warren (michelle.r.warren@dartmouth.edu) by March 15th.

The global medieval and early modern world (broadly considered, c. 900-1750) underwent myriad profound changes, from devastating famines, plagues, and wars to an increased entanglement of the continents, economic transformations, and technological and scientific developments. These changes were often accompanied by calls for the reshaping of the institutions and structures – political, religious, intellectual, etc. – which undergirded societies’ approach to these challenges, encompassing such responses as resistance, resilience, and renewal.
