Conference: Latin in Medieval Britain

The 'Latin in Medieval Britain: Sources, Language, and Lexicography' conference will take place in Oxford from 12 to 14 December 2013.

2013 is the centenary of the proposal for a new dictionary of Medieval Latin that led to the start of many dictionary projects across Europe. It also sees the completion of the final fascicule of the Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources (DMLBS).

The conference will provide a forum for the consideration of British Medieval Latin in its historical, intellectual and linguistic context, examining the diversity of medieval sources and genres, and relevant issues in lexicography and linguistics.

A distinguished list of speakers includes Charles Burnett (Warburg Institute), Mary Garrison (York), Andy Orchard (Toronto), and Richard Sharpe (Oxford), as well as the longest-serving editor of the DMLBS, David Howlett.
