Latin-Greek Code-Switching in Early Modernity

The first workshop funded by “Literatures without Borders” will take place in Leuven (Belgium) from 13 to 14 October 2022. The event, organised by William Barton and Raf Van Rooy, is a collaboration between the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies and the University of Leuven. The exchange will deal with linguistic and literary questions regarding code-switching between Latin and Greek in the period from 1400 to 1800. Given the importance of imitation and the authority of ancient writers in this period, the workshop will also reflect the diachronic aspects of Latin–Greek code-switching in comparing ancient, mediaeval and early modern practices.
