5:00pm to 6:30pm
Brasenose College, Radcliffe Square, Oxford, OX1 4AJ

 

This group provides a relaxed and collaborative forum in which to read, translate and discuss a wide variety of Anglo-Norman texts. This term, we will be reading a selection of passages from the long continuation of the Prose Brut, put together by Andy King.  Passages will be provided in hard copy in the session, or can be accessed in advance online via a dropbox folder (please email Liv, below, if you would like to have online access to the text). Our speaker session will take place in 7th week’s meeting, when Annaliese Griffiss will be discussing her work on female sexuality in Marie de France’s Lais and Ovid.  This session will be followed by our termly dinner, to which attendees are warmly invited.

All are welcome to the group, and no previous experience of Anglo-Norman is necessary: please do join us for a glass of wine and a slice of Anglo-Norman on a Friday night!

For further information, or to be added to our mailing list, please contact Dr Liv Robinson: olivia.robinson@bnc.ox.ac.uk

The reading group is held at Brasenose College (room tbc, meet in the lodge, access via Radcliffe Square).
