Poetic Anthologizing in the Medieval Latin West

Workshop 5-6 July 2019 at St Johns College, University of Cambridge, organised by Máire Ní Mhaonaigh (University of Cambridge) , Elizabeth Tyler (Centre for Medieval Literature, University of York), Wim Verbaal (Ghent University)


This is the third workshop in a series on poetic anthologizing. The aim of this workshop is to shape a proposal for a special issue of a journal on the topic of poetic anthologising in the Latin West during the Middle Ages. The special issue will be made up of conceptually strong contributions, each of which crosses languages, geographies and periods within the medieval Latin West. The special issue, while not aiming to be comprehensive, will be wide-ranging, including Arabic, English, German, Hebrew, Irish, Italian, Latin, French, and Spanish and Welsh, and ranging from Late Antiquity to the Late Middle Ages. 
The workshop is supported by the Centre for Medieval Literature at the University of Southern Denmark and the University of York and the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic and St John’s College at the University of Cambridge.
