From Insular to European Romance: The Medieval Bevis-Tradition in Multi-Text Manuscript Contexts (DFG)
How has the medium of the multi-text manuscript shaped the reception of popular romances in different regions of Europe? And how do the processes by which romances were adapted across regional and dialectal borders mirror the processes of translating them across national and linguistic borders? These are some of the questions we are addressing in the DFG-funded project: ‚From Insular to European Romance: The Medieval Bevis-Tradition in Multi-Text Manuscript Contexts‘, see our website: https://bevismanuscripts.wordpress.com/
Dissolving Subjects in Medieval Reliquaries and Twentieth-Century Mass Graves (HERA)
As part of the HERA-funded joint research project enticingly titled DEEPDEAD, I worked with fourteenth-century relics and current archaeological excavations to learn more about how the bodies of the dead generate new narratives. The results of my investigations can be found in my essay on ‚Dissolving Subjects in Medieval Reliquaries and Twentieth-Century Mass Graves‘, forthcoming 2020 in Interdisciplinary Explorations of Postmortem Agency: The Uses of Dead Bodies, Funerary Objects, and Burial Spaces through Time (Springer) ed. by Estella Weiss-Krejci, Sebastian Becker, and Philip Schwyzer.
