    The multilingual city, c. 1250 – c. 1800

    Historical approaches

    Cities are multilingual, but histories of the premodern city too rarely think in detail about the workings of language in urban communities and environments. At the same time, the social history of language has rarely taken into account the spatial dimension of multilingualism in the past. As a centre of political, cultural, and intellectual life, as well as a site of cultural exchange, the city has long been a place of linguistic encounter and of language change, as historical sociolinguists have shown. This workshop will bring historians together to consider multilingualism as a social fact, and to explore the relationship between multilingualism and the development of the premodern city.

    (Re)Ordering the Gods. The Mythographic Web through Times

    Names and epithets, historical facts, rituals and monuments, textual fragments, plants and places: these are samples of the wide material that the mythographic tradition deals with. How do we organise it? What data to choose, how to present it and what for? This online workshop organised at the Warburg Institute will question the different forms of mythographic compilation.
