*POSTPONED* Medieval Multilingual Manuscripts: Texts, Scribes, and Patrons
21st May 2020 - 23rd May 2020€20
*DIAS 2020 ACADEMIC EVENT*
The aim of this conference is to bring together scholars working on medieval bilingual or multilingual sources from a variety of linguistic backgrounds, geographical areas, and literary genres. It will provide a platform which will further discussion on historical code-switching and multilingual communities. This will benefit greatly from a multi-layered approach, in which questions about the linguistic make-up of individual texts in terms of, for example, code-switching, might also be placed in the context of the manuscripts that contain them, the scribes who copied them and the patrons who commissioned them.
