BritInn Fellowship Report
More about the research project...
Focusing on the period c. 1250–1400 this project will look at numerous authors who, while in Europe, formed an integral part of the intellectual elite, but who also travelled across the Mediterranean, Middle East, Central Asia, with some even going as far as China. We will think about the ways in which these texts were formed by and helped from literary traditions in later Medieval Europe and how the experiences of these authors whilst encountering the exotic helped develop their writings for their target audiences.
The project will allow time for the investigators to discuss these vital questions, while also allowing them to lay the foundation for future research and collaboration between institutions across Europe.
