The twenty-fourth International Medieval Congress will take place in Leeds, UK, from 3-6 July 2017. The IMC seeks to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of all aspects of Medieval Studies. However, every year, the IMC chooses a special thematic strand which – for 2017 – is ‘Otherness’. This focus has been chosen for its wide application across all centuries and regions and its impact on all disciplines devoted to this epoch.
The Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society (MRDS) seeks papers for a session on Latin in early drama that it intends to sponsor for Leeds 2017.
One important aspect of otherness is language. As vernacular languages replaced Latin as the primary mode of communication in the Middle Ages, what variations on ‘otherness’ emerged in drama? We invite papers that explore ‘otherness’ in medieval drama through the Latin language.
Possible areas to consider are (but not limited to) the following:
Latin as a mark of power or status
Latin to evoke inclusion or exclusion
Latin sources for vernacular drama
Vernacular sources for Latin drama
Religious devotion and Latin
Latin rhetoric and performance
