Your Mother Was a Hamster! Medieval Insults and How to Use Them

Saturday 8 June 2019, 10.00AM to 4.30pm

Enrol and pay online

When is it insulting to be called an owl? Why call someone a liver eater? What was the medieval answer to the rap battle? This workshop provides context for some of the social, political and cultural conflicts of the Middle Ages by exploring what is said and what cannot be said in medieval texts, and introduces an anthology of contemporary dispute and profanity, from the insulting to the unspeakable.
