Rhyme, but no reason? Latin and English fun in the Early Modern Period

Latin was everywhere in the early modern period – it was the language of education and the lingua franca, used in letters, science and literature. Many English authors of the period wrote in Latin and English or combined both. During this workshop, we will look at literature in which authors use a combination of English and Latin to humorous effect. We will discuss examples of verse and plays - in particular, a comedy called Ignoramus, of which we will perform a passage.

Date: Fri Nov 17 2023

Time: 13:00:00 GMT+0000 (Greenwich Mean Time)

Location: Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU

CFP: World Congress of Scottish Literatures 2024

The fourth World Congress of Scottish Literatures will be hosted by the School of English at the University of Nottingham, from Wednesday 3rd to Sunday 7th July 2024.

While the fourth World Congress does not have a specific theme, our scope is transnational, and we would especially welcome papers on subjects that reflect the specific context of the Congress in Nottingham: the relationship between Scotland and England from earliest times to the present, a relationship which has had profound implications for the entire world, and which is a significant relationship in literatures in Scots, Gaelic, English, French and Latin from earliest evidence to contemporary production.
