Identity and Culture in French Medieval Society

Guillaume Paugam welcomes Ramani Chandramohan on the podcast this week, to talk about her Master’s degree in Modern Languages and her research interest in French medieval literature. 
Many of the questions she tackles resonate a lot with contemporary issues: social and national identity, interaction between different religions and cultures. Ramani is particularly interested in the presence of Saracens, the muslim population of the countries around the Mediterranean in the middle ages, in French medieval literature. 
She also talks us through the fascinating process of research in medieval literature, old manuscripts and medieval languages.
