Renaissance Multilingualism

Posted By Vanessa Glauser, Friday, May 13, 2016

This panel seeks papers that explore the phenomenon of multilingualism in the Renaissance. What does multilingualism mean at the time? How are different languages acquired and prioritized in an educational context? In particular, what is the different status of ancient languages in contrast to the modern vernaculars? And finally, how do proficiencies in either modern or ancient foreign languages impact and shape literary production? Contributions that analyze the multilingual dynamics within literary texts, collections or translations are particularly welcome. Please submit a 150 word abstract and CV to Vanessa Glauser at vaglau@stanford.edu by May 20. (The panel will be sponsored by the Stanford "Renaissances" Focal Group; for CV please see CV guidelines and models)
