Hello fellow friends of Medieval German,
with a slight delay, we want to introduce this term’s Middle High German reading group.
It is a great opportunity to improve your reading and translating skills in a relaxed and informal environment and everybody is welcome. We translate and discuss a variety of medieval texts both prose and poetry.
This terms topic will be adultery, so you can look forward to
4th week: Nibelungenlied
5th week: Tristan (Gottfried von Straßburg)
6th week: Tristan (Gottfried von Straßburg)
7th week: Die Suche nach dem glücklichen Ehepaar (Heinrich Kaufringer)
8th week: Der Renner: Ziegenschwank (Hugo von Trimberg)
We will meet every Thursday at Somerville College in the Productivity Room (Margery Fry) at 9:00 and are looking forward to seeing you all there.
If you want to participate, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, as the texts and some useful information about Middle High German will be shared in a Dropbox, please include your Dropbox e-mail address, so we can add you.
We are really looking forward to meet you all!
All the best
Rebekka and Melina
