“In angles & corners”: A Community of Reading ‘Paupers’ in Late Medieval England
This paper will trace the connections between a community of ‘heretical’ readers in the medieval diocese of Norwich, as evidenced through heresy trials and other records, in order to initiate a seminar discussion about pedagogical equity in unconventional spaces. It will also ask us to consider a model of literacy that is communal rather than individual.
This event is free, but all participants must register in advance and space is limited. To register and request a copy of the pre-circulated paper, click below. Please do not request a paper unless you plan to attend.Register
