Using more than one language in a given text has a long tradition, from medieval religious spectacles to present-day pop culture, from “The Name of the Rose” to contemporary bilingual novels and plays. The panel invites contributions that focus on the significance of language change in spoken and written texts (novels, poetry, song lyrics, theater etc.) and examine the function of code-switching in the context of intersections of language and culture.
