Our Medieval World Drama Working Group has been meeting monthly during the academic year since 2019. For more information about MWDWG, visit the group’s webpage. All friends of PLS are invited to participate in the readings! If you’re interested in joining, please RSVP to info@plspls.ca for Zoom details (online) or to request printed copies of the text (in person).

Here’s the information about the upcoming meeting from Dr. Matthew Milo Sergi:

The Medieval World Drama Working Group will meet on Wed 22 Mar, 3:30-5pm, to look at Tedford’s translation of the K’iche’ play “Rabinal Achi [Man of Rabinal]”, which descends from Mayan pre-Colombian dramas in what is now called Guatemala. The dating of this one is especially tricky and presses hard on the question of what counts as “medieval” and why — I’ll talk a bit about that at the beginning of our meeting.

The meeting will happen in person AS WELL AS on Zoom at 3:30pm on Wed 22 Mar — as always, please do come in person if you can and if you feel comfortable doing so — again, it makes a big difference to have a group gather for this stuff.

The in-person room is room 718 of the Jackman Humanities Building (seventh floor, 170 St George St, at the corner of St George and Bloor).

Stay tuned for more details about VERY GLUTTONOUS, VERY RAUNCHY, VERY LATE MEDIEVAL: A Staged Reading of Six New Play Translations from Middle French and Fifteenth-Century Spanish. Coming Friday April 14 and Saturday April 15…

Thanks for the Jackman Humanities Institute for their support.
