‘Active Latin for Neo-Latin Research’ builds on the success of past online events – especially for students and early career researchers – hosted by the Society for Neo-Latin Studies (SNLS). This exciting and innovative event will showcase the use of ‘Active’ (or ‘Spoken’) Latin to enhance the teaching and study of Neo-Latin texts and explore Latin as a spoken language in the Early Modern period. The event will consist of talks delivered by Milena Minkova (University of Kentucky), Terence Tunberg (University of Kentucky), and Sarah Knight (University of Leicester), and there will also be an interactive and immersive workshop led by Milena Minkova and Terence Tunberg using genres of Neo-Latin texts (such as the colloquia familiaria) for engaging with the practice of ‘Active Latin’.
Registration is free via Eventbrite.
Registration via Eventbrite is essential and handouts will be sent to participants before the event takes place.
