NEW MEETING

#PUBLICMEDIEVALISM: DEVELOPING METHODS TO COUNTER THE ALT-RIGHT

LOCATION TIME
EMMANUEL CENTRE: WILSON ROOM 13.00-14.00

The rapid growth of social media usage and the emergence of social media subcultures, such as #medievaltwitter, have led to historical scholarship arguably never being more open, vibrant, or accessible. Alongside this development, however, has been an alarming growth of appropriation of the past by resurgent far-right and white supremacist movements to promote their political goals, as charted by authors such as Dorothy Kim at In the Medieval Middle (http://www.inthemedievalmiddle.com/2016/11/the-unbearable-whiteness-of- medieval.html) or The Public Medievalist’s special series, Race and Racism in the Middle Ages (http://www.publicmedievalist.com/race-racism-middle-ages-toc/) .

The battle for the past is fought across the twittersphere. Alongside a regular output of memes promoting distorted, far-right interpretations of a pure white, Christian past, events such as #femfog and Rebecca Rideal’s withdrawal from the Chalke Valley History Festival have also attracted backlash online, and most medievalists with a presence on twitter will have experienced the reception and misinterpretation of their output – either by open members of the alt-right or members of a wider public informed by nationalistic and racialist ideas.

We invite delegates, especially those who make frequent use of Twitter, to an open, informal discussion on the development of methods to effectively counter this trend, while ensuring that our twitter output remains no less lively, engaging, and publicly accessible. 

For enquiries please contact Sihong Lin (@shlin28) and James Harland (@djmharland, [email protected])

OTHERNESS IN THE WORLD OF THE TROUBADOURS

PERFORMED, WITH COMMENTARY, BY JON ERIK SCHELANDER

LOCATION TIME PRICE
LEEDS UNIVERSITIES CATHOLIC CHAPLAINCY 20.30-22.00 £12.00

The Troubadours were songwriters who composed and performed in the 12th and 13th centuries in what is now the South of France. They created a new poetry in their songs, wildly inventive in form, with beautiful melodies. Many elements of the troubadour’s world and art was marked by tensions generated by otherness - some resolved and others, tragically, not. These weave profoundly through the whole of their history, expressed in their language and the way their songs approach issues of social standing, gender, and religion. This programme will include songs and poetry by Guilhem Peiteus, Jaufre Rudel, Bernart de Ventadorn, Guiraut de Bornelh, Raimbaut de Vaqueiras, Comtessa de Die, Peire Cardenal, Aimeric de Pegulhan, Albertet, Rigaut de Berbezilh, Pons d’Ortaffa, and Uc de Sainte Circ. The concert will be framed by Guiraut de Bornelh’s dawn song – the Alba, ‘Reis Glorios’. Here, in the most iconic example of ‘otherness’ in this literature, the woman (whose voice is not heard) is poised between night and day, and between ‘the Jealous One’ and the ‘Other’, her heart’s chosen lover.

Jon Erik Schelander started singing the songs of the Troubadours 25 years ago in the Languedoc, France where Occitan, the language of the Troubadours, is still spoken. He performs these songs with the intensity that they demand. He sets the songs in their historical context with vivid storytelling, and breathes life into them with his rich voice. His work in medieval music has included publishing two Troubadour songbooks, translations of Troubadour texts and the making of musical instruments. He served for two years on the Board of Directors of CREMM – TROBAR: Gerard Zuchetto’s Centre de Recherche et d’Expression des Musiques Medievales in Carcassonne, France. He has performed Troubadour programs for Universities, Early Music groups, Arts Centres, Folk Festivals, and the Edinburgh Fringe as well as on the radio in France and England.

OTHERNESS IN THE WORLD OF THE TROUBADOURS

PERFORMED, WITH COMMENTARY, BY JON ERIK SCHELANDER

LOCATION TIME PRICE
LEEDS UNIVERSITIES CATHOLIC CHAPLAINCY 20.30-22.00 £12.00

The Troubadours were songwriters who composed and performed in the 12th and 13th centuries in what is now the South of France. They created a new poetry in their songs, wildly inventive in form, with beautiful melodies. Many elements of the troubadour’s world and art was marked by tensions generated by otherness - some resolved and others, tragically, not. These weave profoundly through the whole of their history, expressed in their language and the way their songs approach issues of social standing, gender, and religion. This programme will include songs and poetry by Guilhem Peiteus, Jaufre Rudel, Bernart de Ventadorn, Guiraut de Bornelh, Raimbaut de Vaqueiras, Comtessa de Die, Peire Cardenal, Aimeric de Pegulhan, Albertet, Rigaut de Berbezilh, Pons d’Ortaffa, and Uc de Sainte Circ. The concert will be framed by Guiraut de Bornelh’s dawn song – the Alba, ‘Reis Glorios’. Here, in the most iconic example of ‘otherness’ in this literature, the woman (whose voice is not heard) is poised between night and day, and between ‘the Jealous One’ and the ‘Other’, her heart’s chosen lover.

Jon Erik Schelander started singing the songs of the Troubadours 25 years ago in the Languedoc, France where Occitan, the language of the Troubadours, is still spoken. He performs these songs with the intensity that they demand. He sets the songs in their historical context with vivid storytelling, and breathes life into them with his rich voice. His work in medieval music has included publishing two Troubadour songbooks, translations of Troubadour texts and the making of musical instruments. He served for two years on the Board of Directors of CREMM – TROBAR: Gerard Zuchetto’s Centre de Recherche et d’Expression des Musiques Medievales in Carcassonne, France. He has performed Troubadour programs for Universities, Early Music groups, Arts Centres, Folk Festivals, and the Edinburgh Fringe as well as on the radio in France and England.
