We are scheduled for Thursday, 17 July, 14:00-15:30.
The roundtable format means that each panelists will present a 5-7 minute project overview. We will then follow those presentations with a 30-45 minute conversation among the panelists and the audience on what we can learn about Chaucer from these non-Anglophone translations and appropriations.
