Abstract

The Centre for Medieval Studies at Exeter is sponsoring two linked sessions, of which this is the first, which seek to investigate, and deepen understanding of the multiple ways in which aristocratic court culture was performed and experienced in medieval Europe. These two sessions bring together scholars from Exeter working in different disciplines to offer a dynamic and interdisciplinary approach to a fascinating topic. In particular we are interested to explore the interface of poetry, music, literature, and law within court settings, as well as discussing the figures behind this body of ‘text’ and their interaction as part of interpretative communities.
