Teaching Medieval French: Sustainable Approaches for the Next Generation
Date: April 27-29, 2023
Location: University of Warwick central campus (see travel directions) and St Mary's Guildhall in Coventry City Centre
This three-day event for UK-based university teachers, researchers, early career academics and postgraduates comes out of two online ‘state-of-the-discipline’ workshops for Medieval French Studies organised in 2022. Responding to a need identified at those workshops, this in-person event at the University of Warwick will enable participants to develop new, sustainable, interdisciplinary approaches for teaching medieval French materials to undergraduates across a range of HE institutions. Bringing together scholars from material cultures, visual cultures, and performance studies, these workshops will lay the foundations for a refreshed teaching practice and inform the medieval French pedagogy of the future.
