“Early Medieval Thinking Machines”
UBC Early Romance Studies Research Cluster
November 17 at 3:00 pm
room 799 (FHIS Lounge)
Buchanan Tower, 1873 East Mall.
After this week’s exciting lecture on Christine de Pizan by Dr. Tania Van Hemelryck (Louvain), for our next talk we turn to earlier medieval documents as we welcome Dr. Evina Steinova as presenter.
Dr. Evina Steinova, Affiliated Researcher of the Dutch Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences, is currently spending some time at UBC. Her main area of research is the history of Latin texts and we have included her talk on medieval Latin glossaries in our series since this topic is closely connected to the medieval Romance culture. Dr Steinova will discuss images of manuscripts containing glossaries (such as the one on the attached poster) and will ask whether they are mainly vocabulary lists or can be interpreted differently. This talk will be in English.
Please share this with anyone who may be interested, including your graduate students. The UBC Early Romance Studies Research Cluster’s meetings and presentations are open and inclusive. Our main fields are the Romance literatures, languages, and cultures from the Middle Ages to the 18th century; as well as contacts between these and non-Romance texts, authors, genres, and ideas. If you would like to offer a research presentation (in any format) please contact us!
