Booking now open: Playing with medieval visions, sounds, sensations

Come play with medieval things... collage by Fran Allfrey.

We are very happy to announce that booking for the Arts and Humanities Festival 2016 is now open!

CLAMS PhD candidates Charlotte Rudman, Charlotte Knight, Francesca Brooks, Francesca Allfrey, Beth Whalley, and Dr Carl Kears will be facilitating four workshops exploring the physical, textual, and aural properties of medieval poems.

We’ll be focusing on Chaucer’s House of Fame during two workshops on Thursday 13 October, 2:30-5:00 and 6:00-8:30.

Monday 17 October, 2:30-5:00 and again at 6:00-8:30 we’ll introduce participants to the Old English poem know as the Dream of the Rood.

On Friday 21 October from lunchtime you’ll be able to view responses created in the workshops, as well as a selection of materials that inspired them. Then, from 5:30-6:30, join us for a symposium reflecting upon the medieval modern, with readings in Old and Middle English, and presentations on David Jones’ medievalism by Francesca Brooks, and on Old English in the King’s Archives by Dr Carl Kears.

We’ll update this blog with thoughts and ideas before, during, and after the workshops. We’ll give a sneak peak into what inspired us to do these workshops, and the various fascinating ways that the medieval continues to make new work today.

In the meantime, please do book your place at the workshops and symposium now via the King’s website!
