Medieval Multilingual Manuscripts: Texts, Scribes, and Patrons

22nd May 2020 - 23rd May 2020

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.
