[Dedicated to the dedicated Valerie Michelle Wilhite.]
This post is a spin-off from an abstract I was writing for a call for papers, which I’m also sharing and redistributing immediately here below. It’s an idea for an ideal (post-book) edition of the 13th-c. Occitan Flamenca, and the post is punctuated with illuminations from Scarfolk Council*. You see, I am still being rather overcome with joy because of two things:
- Flamenca is gaining recognition (a steady happiness since May), and
- yesterday, my copy of Discovering Scarfolk arrived.
Some of this post is still in note/draft form, but you’ll get the gist of the idea.
