Call for Participants: ‘Revoicing Medieval Poetry’, Online, May-June 2022

Revoicing Medieval Poetry will offer a workshop-conversation space for researchers, artists and practitioners who are engaged in exploring how, why, and to what effects medieval poetry is translated, reused, and resourced in twentieth- and twenty-first-century creative practices.

This summer, we are hosting four workshops for practitioners and researchers who are interested in the ‘revoicing’ of early medieval literature in all its creative forms.

The first three workshops will be hosted online by the University of Reading, King’s College London, and the University of York and will see invited speakers collaborate with a host researcher (Fran Allfrey, Carl Kears, and Fran Brooks) to lead the session. In the fourth and final online session we will hear from Professor Clare Lees on her wealth of experience in devising and developing collaborative, creative-critical projects, before turning the space over to participants to share works-in-progress.

Although participants won’t be asked to prepare anything in advance, the workshops are designed to be generative for ongoing research and practice: you might be a researcher working on medieval/modern literary and/or visual culture, or you might be a writer or an artist with an interest in reworking medieval materials.

We hope that the online format will make these workshops accessible to researchers and practitioners from across the world, but ask that prospective participants send a short expression of interest to sign-up for the limited workshop places. Although you are welcome to join us for any one of the sessions, we hope that many will return to develop the conversation with us across all four events.
