Speakers: Laurent Gerbier (Tours), Olivier Guerrier (Toulouse), Wes Williams (Oxford), Emma Claussen (Cambridge), Sophie Nicholls (Oxford), and John O'Brien (Durham).

In early modern French political, historical and literary traditions, questions of freedom and servitude remain perennial topics of debate. In this one-day colloquium organised by RaphaŽle Mouren (Warburg Institute) and John O'Brien (Durham University), six key researchers currently working in this field of study will represent a spectrum of current critical perspectives from France and the UK on early modern history, political theory, philosophy and literature.

Plurilingualism in the Kingdom of Naples (1442-1503): Reassessing Uses and Literary Production
Friday 6 March 2020, 10,00am to 5.00pm
Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AB

Speakers: David Cowling (Durham), Alessandro Carlucci (Oxford), Valentina Sferagatta (Naples), Carlo Caruso (Siena), Chiara de Caprio (Naples), Florence Bistagne (Avignon), Susan Baddeley (Paris)

Plurilingualism is usually defined as the use of several languages by the same individual. In Naples, at the time of Alfonso and Ferrante of Aragon (1443-1458), the Catalan language was used in the city and the court with Castilian and various italic languages: Tuscan, Neapolitan, but also Greek and Latin (ancient as well as modern), and memories of the old French dynasty and its languages had not yet disappeared. Starting with the Kingdom of Naples as an example of different types of hybridization, transliterations and borrowings, this workshop will offer case studies of other languages and countries to broaden towards a re-examination of the question of plurilinguism in Early Modern Europe.
