The project brings together literary and linguistics specialists from the UK, France, and Spain to share methodologies in an interdisciplinary interrogation of the idea and manifestations of 'voice' in French literary texts from the twelfth to fifteenth centuries. The topic of 'voice' underpins many existing analyses of medieval texts, but is rarely studied as a subject in its own right, and especially not in relation to narrative, as distinct from lyric, works. Funded by a British Academy Small Grant over a period of 20 months, the group will generate a collective book and aims ultimately to expand into a larger network to develop further its exchanges.
